    Every year, during our 9-week instructor course in Argentina, our trainees have the chance to go horse riding in the Patagonian Steppe. We drive them out to a tiny village on the edge of the National Park, called Cuyin Manzano, which is a 90-minute drive from Bariloche. This small village in the middle of nowhere is where course director Ivan's relatives live and work the land. It's a truly beautiful place and is always one of the trainee's favourite days on the course. It's a great chance to experience a slice of rural Patagonia.
