How to saddle a horse gaucho-style

We spent three nights at Panagea Estancia in northern Uruguay as part of our Intrepid trip through South America. If you want to get involved with the daily tasks of the ranch, you need to learn how to saddle your own horse, then ride it gaucho-style: one-handed. Host Juan gives a good, clear explanation about how to achieve both these tasks, and is always on hand to help you out if you get stuck.

    Wow that really cool! I had no idea there was that many layers involved. The horse seemed so relaxed and non-threatening. I thought they would feel uncomfortable when you tightened the strap around them. I wish we had more activities like that near our Edmonton hotels in Alberta.
