Bell Stone Estancias Ride


Bell Stone Estancias Ride
Cordoba/Mendoza Argentina

Swathed in 15,000 acres of secluded grassy wilderness at the top of the Sierra Chicas hills, the Estancia is an idyllic retreat for horsemen, hikers and nature lovers. This working ranch breeds Aberdeen-Angus cattle and Paso Peruano pacing horses. It has been in the Anglo-Argentine Begg family for four generations and offers the possibility of combining the pleasures of British-style estancia life with long-distance riding in one of Argentina's most interesting riding areas.

This eight-day long distance ride starts at the Estancia at Sierra Chicas,  swathed in 15,000 acres of secluded grassy wilderness at the top of the Sierra Chicas hills. It is a working cattle farm that has remained in the same Anglo-Argentine family for four generations. From here to explore the countryside, staying at neighboring estancias or small inns - even camping might be an option for a day.
This horseback ride takes you over the constantly changing geography of the region, through areas impossible to reach by car. You stay at a variety of locations from cattle estancias to very simple dwellings exposing you to the life of the local people. This expedition is rich in local history and offers some exceptional horseback riding.

The Estancia  is very secluded on the top of the "Sierras Chicas" at an altitude of 3,000 feet, nestled between the pampas and the Andes in the heart of the beautiful region of Cordoba. It is steeped in family history and locally there is much evidence of the pioneering work of the Jesuits who first organized farming in the area before they were forced to leave in the 1760's.
If you have a love for the wild and enjoy the thrill of arriving by horse, this adventure allows you to experience Argentine wildlife, scenery and culture at close quarters while not abandoning creature comforts provided by good accommodation, the best tack, and fabulous horses.

This is a place for people who appreciate fine horses and know how to ride. However, there are horses for every ability, and beginners are welcome.
