BREEDS

Our horses are mainly a mixture between:
Criollo, Thoroughbreds for racing, Argentine Polo ponies and Quarter Mile Horses.

We crossbreed them seeking to achieve a balance according to the kind of horse that we like and that we consider is best adapted to our terrain, geography and requirements.

There are more than 100 horses in Estancia La Rosita.


RIDING HORSES

Horses are indispensable companions, necessary for all the tasks performed at an Estancia.

STALLIONS

2 stallions are currently mating at Estancia a Rosita.
One Thoroughbred Polo Argentino (grandson of Pucara – Tanoira Stud)
One thoroughbred racing horse


COLTS

Presently, there are nearly 30 foals, aged 1 to 3 years.
We start training our foals when they reach approximately three years and a half.
During their first 3 years we gather them every once in a while and handle them to rid them of their tickles with a massage and/or a hose bath. But during those 3 and half years they live in complete freedom!

Unlike many other places or estancias, Estancia La Rosita does not have an exclusive lot of mares destined for cross breeding.
We change every year the cross breeding mares so they may not forget their training and keep on passing their good breeding to their offspring.
