I am 53 years old, I graduated as a lawyer in 1996, but I decided to leave practice long ago. I am an entrepreneur in digital business. I have a web payments and text messaging company. I grew up between Montevideo and the Sierras de Aiguá in Maldonado, where I grew up riding horses and to learned to appreciate and love this type of landscape and nature. When the opportunity to take charge of a boutique hotel, in the middle of the Sierras of Pueblo Edén was presented to me, my vocation to serve and provide good service to people and the love for nature were combined and I did not hesitate to do it.

Tour provider's comments

Western tack, Purebred Arabian horses.

Approximately 4-5 hours riding per day in walk, trot and canter.

Tailored for riders with intermediate to advanced skills. We require participants to possess a solid and balanced riding position, have undergone formal riding instruction to master fundamental horse riding techniques and demonstrate confidence and proficiency in controlling a lively horse across various terrains and paces, including extended periods of trotting and galloping. Riders should also be capable of mounting and dismounting without assistance. 

Except for the initial riding day which lasts 2-3 hours, subsequent rides span 3 to 5 hours with breaks for lunch (at least 1 hour) and sometimes additional rest stops. Horses are unsaddled during lunch breaks. After each break, riders lead their horses briefly to stretch both equine and rider muscles before resuming riding. The pace of the ride varies from moderate to brisk, allowing for energetic canters and gallops.

During particularly hot summer days, rides commence early in the morning and conclude by early afternoon to avoid the heat, with leisure time allocated for relaxation by the pool afterward. Ride pace is adjusted according to weather and terrain conditions, with slower speeds in hot, humid, or wet weather to ensure safety on slippery trails.

Our equipment, including high-quality American Western-style saddles, is meticulously maintained. Additionally, each rider is provided with a small saddlebag containing a water bottle and space for personal items and lunch on select days.

Advanced riders weighing up to 90 kilograms may be allowed based on their height. Providing your precise weight is crucial, regardless of whether you are near the weight limit, to ensure the well-being of our Arabian horses. Their size, slender build, the pace of our rides, the summer heat and the occasionally steep terrain all necessitate accurate weight information.

It's important to know

Tell me about your horses

We've got 9 purebred Arab horses. They range from 6 to 18 years old. They live outside all year, but sometimes we bring them into the stables when the weather's rough. These horses are trained really well for riding long distances on trails. They're lively, energetic and they listen well. Plus, they're in great shape. Some of them are good for riders who are pretty decent, while others need someone more experienced. We try our best to pair up the right horse with the right rider.

    Many individuals may never have the opportunity to witness the beauty of thousands of stars in the night sky or enjoy the tranquility of being away from city life for a couple of days. This place offers a peaceful retreat with a few cabins nestled in a picturesque hillside overlooking farmland, wooded areas & a pond. Located just an hour's drive north of Punta del Este, the journey to this serene haven is surrounded by scenic views of grazing animals. Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the owner, Juan, who treated us like family. The rustic yet comfortable cabins are equipped with modern amenities, providing a cozy stay without televisions. The delicious breakfast served in the clubhouse included farm-fresh eggs, freshly baked bread, orange juice, coffee, yogurt & jams. You can enjoy horseback riding on the grounds with Juan, who also prepares delicious dinners tailored to your preferences. The desserts, served by the attentive facility foreman Alejandro, were equally delightful. Meeting Juan's family added to the welcoming atmosphere of the place. Overall, this hotel offers a memorable experience for families seeking a peaceful getaway.
