Riding our horses into the sunset
Yesterday we went off on a sunset horse riding trek with a 4th generation “huasco” (Chilean word for cowboy) who retired from working at a local Pisco distillery and now offers horse riding outings in the Elqui valley with a Chilean breed of horse.
The landscape of dry hills, cacti and vineyards was a perfect setting for a beautiful sunset. Being in Chile, no sooner had our guide taught us all to stop than we were all surprised to find ourselves practicing to gallop! (No helmets or waivers in sight). It was fabulous!
