Janeke driving the cattle
Our school is located in the best horse-breeding area of Argentina. Due to the pleasant climate and fertile grass, horses grow healthier and stronger here than in any other place of the country. The most renowned Polo and racing-horses studs, horse riding and Polo schools are located in the area. Some of my students can bike every day to the riding school.
Since its foundation in 1730, the history of the town San Antonio de Areco has been connected to horses. During those days mules and horses were bred there and sold in Perú. Nowadays the city has skillful horsemen, outstanding silversmiths and gifted rawhide plaiters who craft beautiful leather saddles, reins, bridles and anything you need as a rider.

In San Antonio de Areco the people are really proud of their traditions: young guys go out wearing traditional Gaucho clothes, 150-year-old pubs offer drinks to locals and visitors every evening and in november the town celebrates the Traditional Gaucho Festival with horse games, a parade of over 7,000 cowboys riding along the streets of the town.
