Overview

Horse Riding Chile takes individuals or groups on rides into the Andes mountains in the Cajon del Maipo near Santiago. We offer 1 day rides with lunch, longer rides camping in the mountains and also family rides. We can also take experienced riders who want to ride hard and go as far as possible into the mountains. We have excellent well-fed and cared for horses, sure-footed and easy to ride. We can take advanced, experienced riders and first time riders. Our guides have lived and worked in the Cajon del Maipo all their lives. We can arrange for pickup and drop-off in Santiago.
