Estancia Huechahue is a 15,000-acre cattle ranch owned by Jane Williams, on the River Alumine, 70km east of San Martn in the foothills of the Andes. Caters for all levels of rider, from beginner to expert, with riding programs that are tailored to the individual's requirements. Your stay can be based entirely at Huechahue, or include a longer trek in the Lann National Park, in which case camping will be involved. For a real taste of Patagonian life, join a cattle drive. Horses will be matched to riders according to experience (none required, although you will get more out of the cattle drive if you are at least a competent rider). NB: If you are unfit, the cattle drive can be quite gruelling. When choosing an estancia, check out who runs it, the quality of the horses, the standard of service and the cattle drive itself (distance covered, food and drink provided, equipment included), so you know exactly what to expect. If you just want a small taste of the action, there is always the rounding up of cattle round the estancia at other times of year.
