Accommodations for Hacienda Alegria Riding Getaway




Accommodations
This is a stationary ride where all nights are spent at the same location.

Description
The hacienda is nestled amidst lush surroundings in the typical fertile lush green farmland of the Ecuadorian inter Andean plain at high altitude (2880m). You will be welcomed with a roaring log fire in the sitting room.
The Hacienda  was build in 1910 in Franco Italian Style and has been renovated and restored and is surrounded by beautiful gardens awash with colorful flowers and native trees, including some species in danger of extinction such as the wax palm. The Hacienda is made of adobe and stone its walls are over 80 cm thick!! Lots of character. Most rooms have private bathroom and fireplaces. There will be plenty of time to relax in front of the fireplace after an incredible day in the saddle.
This is the family home of the Espinosas. Your host Gabriel comes from a long tradition of equestrian sports. His grandfather bred racing horses close to Quito and his father, Renato Espinosa was a keen polo player. Gabriel followed in the same footsteps as a young man, horse-jumping and playing competitive polo. The hacienda is full of fascinating equestrian heirlooms, including antique side-saddles, cattle brands and traditional "Chagra" (Andean cowboy) tack.
Gabriel and Paty's three daughters and 4 grandchildren are all keen riders, and the enthusiasm of the whole family is reflected in the quality of the horses at the farm.
The Hacienda also has a large working cattle farm with nearly 250 head of cattle producing milk. So anyone can help milking the cows or feeding the calves, or try lassoing a bull.
