Plantation Ride
Rio/Sao Paulo Brazil
São Paulo may be the economic, industrial and financial powerhouse of Brazil, and indeed of South America, but it also offers some of the finest rural experiences of the region. Thanks to its cultural diversity and its vast and multifaceted territory, the interior of São Paulo State includes some interesting riding experiences.

Riding in the coffee highlands takes you through the coffee-growing region of the northeast of the State of Sao Paulo, visiting some of the great historic plantation homes, and passing through the surprisingly well-preserved natural wealth of the region. The diversified terrain takes you from plains to mountains; up and down escarpments and on plateaus that offer an ever-changing scenery punctuated by springs and waterfalls. This variety also accounts for the wealth of arts and crafts that are produced in the region: in leather, ceramics, embroidery, jams and other preserves, honey, coffee, cheese and of course the local firewater, cachaça.

Since the mid-nineteenth century some of the finest coffee in all of Brazil has come from this region. The altitude (800-1,300 metres), the dry winters, rainy summers and fertile soil make for perfect coffee growing conditions. Visit some of the great historic plantation homes, pass through rolling meadows, along woodland paths and splash through clear streams.

But there are still areas of Sao Paulo state that have not given way to coffee growing. In these pockets of land the Atlantic Rainforest still remains and here you can often find the Jequitiba tree, a giant of the forest, this species can grow to over 40 metres tall and 3 metres in diameter. The oldest known specimen is estimated at around 3,000 years old.

Our ride begins at Fazenda Nova which is close to the city of Mococa. The homestead is one of the oldest plantation homes in the region and the ranch used to be twenty times the size it is today before it was shared amongst family members over the years. Horses have been bred and trained here for seven generations.
