Program

The horses

The breeding of Creole horses is a tradition at the farm. They consider the horse as a work tool in the Estancia, but it is also considered as a means of recreation and amusement for the guests, who, through this breed, can learn a little more about Argentine history, the origins and evolution of the breed right up to its present conformation, and get to know about its different destinations and uses.

The herd of brood mares they have is the result of a long process of morphological and functional selection, and guests are invited to partake in short, medium and long-distance rides to the different areas of the estancia.

Everyone in Santa María rides, no matter how extensive his or her degree of knowledge of the Gaucho style of riding may be. They receive experts on the subject who are demanding to the quality of their mounts and the type of horseback activities they offer, as well as beginners who wish to try riding for the first time. The gauchos are patient and more than willing to transmit the knowledge of how to turn this activity into an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

Santa María horses are tamed and trained in the Estancia and guests may observe this activity, and, according to the time of the year see how the animals which will participate in the different annual Agricultural Shows are being prepared. The biggest and most important show is the Rural Society's show in Buenos Aires.
