Discovering the Pantanal plains on horseback is certainly a gratifying alternative, for, besides the integration between men and horse it allows you to explore the diversity of the Pantanal landscape including some flooded areas of the Pantanal plain where otherwise we would not be able to acess.

In this region, the horse is the Pantaneiros’ best friend, a daily companion during work and leisure.
