Scenic Views and Wildlife
Most guests prefer our leisurely trail
rides enjoying lovely scenic views along the many rural paths
(dirt roads) that connect one farm to another. Sometimes we
encounter wildlife such as capivaras, raccoons, a wild cat,
and lots of birds such as owls and siri-emas (roadrunners).
We pass through plantations of coffee
and sugarcane, corn and soybeans, hayfields, eucalyptus plantations
and pastures full of white Brahman cattle. We visit the old
chapels and coffee storage buildings from Brazil's rural past.
The gallopers can go on ahead and the
rest of us will catch up later.
We also ride down to the river and
through a shallow part of it. You don't have to get your feet
wet if you don't want to. The adventurers will come back eventually
if we just wait for them on our side of the ford.
