Estancia Los Potreros is an exclusive 6,500 working cattle farm, delightfully secluded at the top of the Sierras Chicas in Córdoba, Argentina, yet less than an hour from an international airport. Farmed by the family for four generations, today Kevin and Louisa Begg delight in welcoming guests to share their home and lifestyle, providing a unique and unforgettable riding holiday.
Every day at the estancia is different. Enjoy long open canters along grassy hilltops; take a refreshing dip in natural rock pools; visit local churches on horseback; help the gauchos round up the cattle or bring in the young horses; try your hand at lassoing or take on the locals at gaucho games - and no trip to Argentina would be complete without trying your hand at polo!
The herd of over 130 horses offers something to delight everyone, for riders of all abilities. Sure-footed and tough criollos. Energetic and smooth gaited Peruvian Paso horses. Strong and even-tempered quarter horses. Agile and fast polo ponies. All are soft-mouthed, forward going and with wonderful temperaments, typical of working horses who lead varied lives and are free to roam on the hills in their downtime. Many are home-bred and raised on the estancia.
Out of the saddle meals are always a highlight and you can enjoy the best of Argentine food and wine. Home-reared beef washed down with our own label Malbec and accompanied by great conversation.
