Historic Cattle Round Up

Historic Cattle Round Up
Highlands Riding Tours Ecuador

The cattle roundup is the most important event that takes place in the vast cattle ranches (‘haciendas’) of the Ecuadorian Andes. It involves the ‘chagras’ (Andean cowhands), riding their horses up into the mountains to round up the fighting  bulls and herd them down into the corrals. It is an incredibly exciting riding experience for competent riders only -with plenty of adrenalin flowing while riding across steep and rough terrain surrounded by the most stunning scenery imaginable.
