WHY HORSE RIDING IN URUGUAY?

Because there is a whole country to be discovered, because there is a diversity of flora, fauna and wildlife, because the people are very friendly and Uruguay is still the country with the best level of security in Latin America. Country folk still sleep with their doors open, keys are left inside cars and they never fail to greet each other when passing by.
