South America is a destination that contains many "Bucket List" contenders, natural and manmade: the thundering Iguassu Falls in Brazil, the glaciers of Tierra del Fuego, the natural wonder that is the Amazon Jungle and the iconic Machu Picchu in the Peru.
Venture Co organised our first riding holiday in South America in 2002 (Peru) and since then we have carefully selected a variety of partner stables that are visited, vetted and trusted.
Here is a selection of South American riding holidays that combine indigenous horse breeds that cope with their local terrain and local conditions naturally. The tack will probably be new to you, but it's comfortable and straight forward to use. The common denominator is that you will be hosted by owners who place horse welfare uppermost: they know their area inside out, have outstanding teams of wranglers, guides and camp cooks and they are eager to show you the best of what their home area has.
