4 day Clinic Rodeo Riding

Chilean rodeo is the official national sport, so widley popular that frequently more poeple attent to rodeo championships than football games. And its nothing like the US Rodeo.
Based on the skills one needs to herd cattle, in Chilean Rodeo 2 riders drive a steer though a 65 to 80 feet wide half moon circle and stop it at a precise point by pushing the animal against the wall. Although tis may not be the most pleasant situation for a steer, in fact no animal is seriously harmed in exercising chilean rodeo properly. Exercising Chilean Rodeo is all about the unity with your horse and the perfect teamwork of two riders riding, running and working as one.We offer this 4 day program together wit Patricio, trainer at the "Club de Huasos" in Pucon. The exercises take place on the trainig ground and the "Media Luna", the halfmoon circle - arena, at Pucon's "Club de Huasos" terrain . On the last day you will drive your own steer.This programis targeted to very advanced and experienced riders as you will be running fast in limited space which requires complete control of your horse. Ideally for couples but we could provide a partner when necessary.
Having started this program just last season here's some pictures and a video of Siggi and Bjarni, father and son, who where the first to attent this Rodeo Clinic.
