Freedom Ride from Chile to Argentina


Freedom Ride from Chile to Argentina


Tack: South American Recado saddle. Very comfortabe for long rides.
Horses: Argentine and Chilean criollo horses and mules. If you have a specific requirement about riding horses or mules you have to ask in advance at time of making your reservation
Pace: On mountain trails mostly walking. The terrain is the challenge rather than speed. We ride to 6-9 hours a day. Physically demanding trip. Suitable for novice to experienced riders who are looking for a real riding expedition.
Level: Riding Level (Click for legend) (2.5 to 4 out of 5)    Low Intermediate+
Age: Min 12 Max 70
Weight: Max 220 lbs
Riders: Min 6 riders Max 14 riders

Pace
We will be riding at high altitude, often above 6000-9000 feet.
The pace is slow with a few trots and canters during most of the trail due to the terrain. This allows to enjoy the scenery, the conversation, take pictures, etc.
The average riding day includes 3 hours on horseback in the morning and 3 to 4 hours in the saddle during the afternoon with plenty of intermediate stops to take pictures, spend some time at specific points of interest, etc.

Horses
We assign horses according to each rider's preference. We have plenty of horses, some are more challenging while others are very easy to handle. They are sure-footed as they were all born and raised in the mountains.

Safety measures
The trails are well known by our guides. In those places we believe risky, we step down the horse and walk. In case of emergency, our guides are trained and know what to do. We carry radio equipment, first aid kits, an iridium satellite phone and oxygen bottles in case of emergency. We consider a must that all our guests follow our guide's instructions.

IMPORTANT
American citizens do not require a Visa, but Chile requires them to pay US$ 130 upon arrival.
Those under 21 years of age require legal parent authorization.
You must comply with customs regulations.
