  • Under the Spell of Horses - Argentina

    5:33

    Download of 52 min. film under:


    No other country brings so many foals into the world, no other country exports as many horses and nowhere else in the world is there such a rich and diverse horse culture as in Argentina. The film, which is part of the series Under the Spell of Horses, gives the viewer a glimpse of three very different worlds: the gauchos in the pampa, the exclusive polo scene and the daily fight for survival of the Cartoneros, the rubbish collectors in the gigantic city of Buenos Aires.
    Director Thomas Wartmann tells a personal story from each of these worlds, and all of them end with a small dream coming true.

  • Horse Riding in Argentina

    5:55

    Going Gaucho in Argentina! In this short film, Wild Frontiers boss, Jonny Bealby, leads the Gaucho Christmas tour in Corrientes, northern Argentina. Showing the group cattle ranching, learning to play polo and dance the tango, as well as taking off in a full cavalry charge, the tour lasted 8 nights starting on Christmas Eve and ending on New Years Day.

    Few destinations lend themselves to a riding adventure quite like Argentina. From cattle round-ups to riding hell for leather across the grassy plains of the Pampas, this horse-back adventure offers a perfect alternative Christmas. Think riding, walking, fishing and wildlife watching, topped off with red wine and steak to die for!

    An authentic horse riding holiday that brings to life the rough and rugged beauty of Patagonia, Argentina, and the local Gaucho culture. With a splash of adventure, ruggedness, good laughs and comfort, you won’t be able to find a better itinerary to delve beneath the surface of Argentina.
    Check out the itinerary here:

    Two words come to mind when describing The Patagonia Trail – authentic & adventurous. You truly won’t be able to find a better itinerary that encompasses the rough and rugged beauty of Argentina’s Patagonia while being brought to life with the gaucho culture of the region.

    Your guide, Jakob Von Plessen is one of globetrotting’s most famous guides, he has one foot in Kenya where he guides for half the year and the other foot in Argentina on this 7 night ride. Jakob has well over 15 years experience escorting guests on horse riding adventures so knows a thing or two about putting together the ideal itinerary that has a splash of adventure, ruggedness, good laughs and comfort.

    So if you’ve always wanted to travel to the horse loving nation of Argentina than NOW is your chance. We couldn’t think of a better way to delve beneath the surface of Argentina than jumping on a Criollo horse (pictured above), drink matte with a gaucho and sing folklorica around a blazing fire under a night sky.

My brother and I spent 10 days helping a real Gaucho (Chilean Cowboy) move 56 of his semi-wild horses 300km from his farm at a low elevation to another pasture at 9000ft in the Chilean Andes. We had no horse experience before this trip and it turned into one of the most memorable trips of our life. This is a glimpse into our time on this adventure.

    My Brother and I have always dreamed of riding horses across South America and when we stumbled upon some crazy photos of the Chilean Cowboy Danilo online we knew we had to commit to this idea.

  • Gaucho for a day at Santa Susana Ranch

    6:44

    We spend a day at Santa Susana Ranch in the outskirts of Buenos Aires to discover how the gauchos lived between the 18th and 19th century. We saw the home of a gaucho and learned more about the culture and the traditions of the Argentine Gaucho's, which became an important part of regional culture tradition.

    They presented the Malambo, a traditional male Gaucho dance and they showed their skills on the horse. Of course it was rounded up with an Asado Barbecue.

    Afterwards we headed back to Buenos Aires to prepare for our departure and we headed back to Germany on the next day.

    In a remote area of Torres del Paine National Park, the wild Patagonian horses roam the steppe after escaping the gauchos’ domesticity.

  • ARGENTINA: GAUCHOS CELEBRATE THE ARGENTINE TRADITION FESTIVAL

    2:26

    Spanish/Nat

    The Gauchos are an institution in Argentina, and the annual festival of The Argentine Tradition is one of their main celebrations.

    The festival is in honour of Jose Hernandez, author of Martin Fierro - Argentina's epic poem about the life of a legendary Gaucho.

    This year for the first time ever the celebrations took place in the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires.

    Each year in November the Gauchos celebrate the festival known as The Argentine Tradition.

    It is an annual display of music, colour and traditional food, to honour Argentina's cowboys-- the Gauchos.

    The week-long celebrations are a good opportunity for the Gauchos to drink, be merry, and show off their stunning traditional garments.

    But most importantly, it's a chance to keep a long standing tradition alive.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    I do this because this is a tradition that I like. I was not born in the countryside, but I like this tradition. This is something I treasure in my heart. I am a traditionalist at heart.
    SUPER CAPTION: Tomas Gonzalez, Gaucho

    This year and for the first time in its history, the celebrations took place in Buenos Aires, the Argentinian capital.

    The festival is incomplete without the traditional parade of Gauchos on horseback.

    The parade is also the event's main competition, where experienced Gauchos show off their ability to ride their horses with grace and elegance.

    The Argentine Tradition is a festivity in honour of Jose Hernandez-- author of Martin Fierro - Argentina's epic poem on the life of a legendary Gaucho.

    The poem is one of Argentina's literary masterpieces and it's considered by many as the bible of the Gauchos.

    Martin Fierro preached unity among the gauchos.

    And many years later these cowboys are honouring that notion, joining Buenos Aires city slickers in search of a common identity with the old masters of the Pampas.

    My trip to Argentina would not have been complete without this chance encounter with the small local Gaucho Community. This was a festival by the community for the community. The charming part was that it was not touristic nor commercial and they were as curious about me as I was of them .
    The overlap in cuisine was exciting as I shared in rolling the empanadas, a skill I learned in my Gujarati home while growing up. Continents cultures and language barriers collapsed with the warm and inclusive Chinitas.

  • ARGENTINA: GAUCHO FESTIVAL

    2:25

    Spanish/Nat

    Thousands have turned out in the Argentian capital, Buenos Aires to watch the 'cowboys of the pampas' show off their riding and dancing skills in a Gaucho Festival.

    The festival was held in the city's oldest abbatoir, 'El Matadero'.

    Horsemanship forms the backbone of the life of the Gaucho.

    Living on the 'pampas' of Argentina and Uruguay, the traditional life of the Gaucho cowboy was a hard one.

    Bringing up cattle, these proud people have survived the onset of modern farming techniques to keep their distinctive culture alive.

    In Buenos Aires, thousands came out to watch the Gauchos at play at the 'Feria de Mataderos'.

    This year's celebration was given extra importance because it is the 110th anniversary of the 'Mataderos' market.

    The market is the largest abbatoir in the country, employing 4 - thousand workers.

    22 - thousand cows are slaughtered here every day.

    Up until 1918 it was possible to watch the killing of the animals.

    The market is now a centre for Gaucho culture, with smaller festivals held here every Sunday.

    The highlight for many visitors is watching the traditional 'carrear de la sortija' Race of the Ring.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    Well, the sport consists of letting go of a sharp point in a small circular ring. It is a tiny ring which you can only see when you are practically on top of it. With a point like this you push it through the ring and retrieve it. If you remove it successfully you have to lift your arm. If you don't lift your arm then the run doesn't count.
    SUPER CAPTION: Voxpop, Gaucho

    The Gauchos still rely heavily on the by-products of cows in order to survive.

    They make and sell leather products, including whips and lassooes.

    Many are sold at the fair.

    Their culture was in its heyday between 1775 and 1875.

    Modern farming techniques and the ever-increasing demands for beef and leather products have threatened their way of life.

    But for this cowboy, they will always survive.

    SOUNDBITE: (Spanish)
    We don't want to forget all of this. It is our tradition. It is of our people. It will continue to be ours.
    SUPER CAPTION: Voxpop, Gaucho

    Dressed in their traditional ponchos and cowboy hats, couples danced throughout afternoon on Sunday.

    Their long, colourful scarves were originally worn to protect them from the prairie dust of the 'pampas'.

    But there was no dust in the centre of Buenos Aires.

    For many, the day was just an opportunity to sit back and enjoy a large beef steak washed down with a bottle of red wine - Gaucho style.

    Explore - Argentina - Patagonia to the Pampas 4 of 4 - BBC Travel Documentary, recorded 12.02.2011

    Simon Reeve leads a team of presenters on a journey through the spectacular landscapes of Argentina, from the vast ice fields of Patagonia to the wide-open plains of the pampas.

    In the south, a group of indigenous people are locked in a historic dispute with the area's biggest landowners, Italian clothing giants Benetton; in Buenos Aires, the children of the disappeared are seeking to find out the truth of what happened to their parents at the hands of Argentina's generals; and in the pampas we meet one of the last true gauchos, whose way of life is being destroyed by an argricultural revolution.

    On the way, we take in one of the greatest matches in world football, visit a penguin colony on the edge, and meet a bishop with a rather unorthodox interest in Evita.
