BRAZIL HORSE RIDING EXPEDITION

Southern Brazil offers diverse and beautiful landscapes but also the chance to experience the real gaucho world! The “Gauchos do Brasil” or the legendary South American cowboys are avid protectors of their ancestor’s traditions which makes the Gaucho way of living one of the most preserved equestrian cultures in the world.

This trail is not a tourist ranch vacation where you're just a number - we are going to share the lives of the locals, stay in authentic working Fazendas (ranches), help with cattle sorting and admire the agility of the notorious criollo horse. Excellent choice if this would be your first time in Brazil as you will get to experience the real, authentic side of the country.

  • What is Bronco Wild Club?
    All our expeditions aim at exploring some of the wildest places on earth on horseback. We offer you the opportunity to share the lives of local people and learn more about their horse culture and traditions in a unique way. We avoid working with big tour operator companies as we want to aid the communities we visit as much as possible. Sometimes we help local tribes develop routes and trails with the idea to start their own businesses and support their families in a much better way. Gaby Terzieva is leading all expeditions. She has been travelling the world on horseback for years, and now she wants to invite other adventurers to join her and share the thrill of discovering forgotten stories with her.
  • What riding skills do I need to have to sign up for one of these adventures?
    We have expeditions that cater to different levels of riders. Some of our destinations are suitable for less experienced riders. Nevertheless, all participants should have a well-balanced seat and be able to walk, trot and gallop in full control of their horse in an open space. They should have experience outside of the arena in various terrain and should be able to adapt quickly to different horses, saddles and styles of riding. Preferably they would have a couple of years in the saddle behind their backs.
  • Can non-riders join?
    Yes, non-riders are welcome to join. They can travel with us in vehicles or with other animals (depending on the destination). We make sure that we fill their program with interesting activities.
  • What to pack for my trip?
    Before departure, we provide you with a detailed packing list for your trip. You can find more information here.
  • How big are the groups?
    Usually, our maximum capacity is 10 riders though some rides are only available for 6 or 8 riders.
  • Where do we sleep and are there any washing facilities available out in the wilderness?
    Accommodation details are shared with you during the booking process. We use lodges, tents, luxurious safari tents, guest houses, yurts, traditional accommodations, local stays and hotels. We aim at providing the best services. Even among the wildest places, we always try to organize shower tents with warm water on the spot as well as toilet facilities (where possible, if not - we just use natural hiding places like rocks, etc.). There are countries where one can shower in the nearby river or waterfall for a more authentic experience. If we cannot provide shower tents for the night, we prepare warm towels for refreshment.
  • Who carries our luggage?
    Luggage is transported by vehicles except when we go to really remote national parks where cars and buses are not allowed to enter. In these cases, we use animals like yaks and donkeys and we usually take just a small backpack with us for the upcoming day or two (so that we don't put too much weight on the animals). We recommend having one backpack with essential things you are going to need during lunch breaks. Most of the time your big suitcases will be accessible only when we arrive at night camp. We also provide you with saddle bags during the ride.
  • How do I book?
    If you are interested in joining one of the upcoming expeditions, please do get in touch - you can also call or WhatsApp Gaby directly at +359 884627809. To secure your spot, you need to pay a deposit and fill in a riding form that we will send you in an email. A few weeks before departure, we will send you information booklets with everything you need to know for your trip.
  • Who leads the tours?
    Gaby Terzieva leads all expeditions. Catalina Camp Prats leads expeditions for Spanish riders exclusively. However, Gaby is always looking for affiliates and people who would be interested to lead their own groups from the country they represent.
  • Travel Information
    Flights, medical insurance and visas must be provided by the client. We can always help with booking flights or find you good deals. We can issue insurance policies for Bulgarian citizens only. Visas and other travel documentations are the responsibility of the riders.
