Get every detail:

Close to downtown Bonito MS Brazil, you will find Parque Ecológico Rio Formoso, a place with several activities to choose from, lots of green, Formoso River and a wonderful pond. One of the options is horse riding, which not only goes through woods and over open fields, but also includes a stop for swimming and splashing around Formoso River's crystal clear waters.

- When you arrive, hand your voucher in at the front desk;
- Pay attention to the information on how the groups are organized, because there are never more than 8 people in each one;
- When it is time to begin, the instructor will gather everyone to check outfits and shoes, as well as provide initial information;
- Once the group is ready, the instructor will let everyone know which horses should be mounted by whom and help those who might need assistance;
- When the group is all set, the instructor will open the gate and the horses begin the walk down the trail;
- The horses are friendly, walk in a single file line and already know the entire path;
- The trail includes open fields, possibly with cattle, and areas in Formoso River's surrounding woods;
- When the time for playing in the river comes, the instructor will let the group know where the horses should be, help visitors who need assistance getting down, and tie the horses;
- When everyone is done enjoying the break and/or river waters, the group gets back on the horses to take a different path back;
- Once back where the activity started, the horses should be directed to the fences, so that they can be tied and visitors can hop off;
- When everyone is off the horses and out of their area, the group is free to change and/or enjoy the pond's area, according to each person's schedule;
- Lunch, if included, may happen before or after the activity, depending on its scheduled time;
*The who operation usually takes around 1 hour and 30 minutes, but it could vary due to weather conditions and/or group needs;
