Where to buy horse riding gear in BA?

by koiruli

Just in BA for a few days, and ASAP need to buy horse riding clothes (and possibly other riding gear). Anybody know any good shops for this?
I am not looking for expensive designer gear or polo stuff, which is all that can be found in BA according to the web searches I've done. But just some good quality, practical riding clothes - riding trousers etc - that every rider needs.

All hints are much appreciated.

In Argentina (and Uruguay and Brazil), cattle is plentiful and cowboys there are known as Gauchos, so you would be looking for gaucho clothes. Here are some samples.

Just Google gaucho clothes, and a bunch of stuff will pop up.

Thanks for these answers. Yes, what I am looking for is gaucho clothes, but the links you provided are online shops. I am looking for actual shops in Buenos Aires (not necessarily in the center of the city, of course).
Anybody know any shops in BA, where to go and try on clothes?

Thank you, Odinnthor.
I will try a couple of the polo shops in this list. However, I have actually already been to five of these shops (Cardon, La Martina etc). They do not really sell practical horse riding gear but very expensive, sporty fashion. They don't have for example proper riding trousers, just trendy jeans or others that have been designed in a gaucho style.
So, if anyone still has any hints on shops where a horse rider would go to buy riding clothes, let me know! (Even though people in Buenos Aires are pretty stylish, I assume Argentine horse riders do not dress in costly fashion gear while riding :)

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Pigeons !

by lemondrop

COUNTING THE PESOS

by RafaelTheSecond

Do not do it in busy places of the city, I was really having fun in San isidro,a very quiet and peaceful province near the Federal Capital...And you should know that the argentinean money is called PESOS, they have notes of 2 pesos, 10 pesos, 20 pesos, 50 pesos and 100 pesos.

ONE DOLLAR IS ABOUT 2.88 TO 2.92 PESOS RIGHT NOW!!!

And remember coins are fully accepted and needed everywhere!

The sweet nector of the Gods!

by Gypsystravels

For those who love wine (me!) Buenos Aires (Argentina in general) has a wonderful selection of fantatic wines. There are many "Bodegues" which are wineries here in Argentina producing some of the best you can find.

Malbec is a favorite of mine and finding a very good and inexpensive Malbec is quite easy here in Buenos Aires. One of my favorite has to be the San Felician which is very good.

Every restaurant we visited provided a nice list of local wines at very reasonable prices. So if you travel to Buenos Aires my advice is to enjoy a nice glass of Malbec with that meal and skip the soda.

Local volunteers to show you around

by mrtourne

I came across this organization the other day, they were covered in Clarin (the biggest newspaper in Buenos Aires) and it sounds like a good option to try out - it's called "Cicerones de Buenos Aires" and it's modeled after the "Big Apple Greeters" in New York. They are basically a group of volunteers who are argentine and speak foreign languages and are willing to show you around Buenos Aires, which may be a good thing to have when trying to find some off-the-beaten-path activities. The service is free and they just want to make sure visitors have a good time in Buenos Aires.

They are sponsored by the Buenos Aires City government and the Argentine Tourism office, which gives them a bit more clout (and let's be honest, makes you feel safer)

One more thing - the service is free!

To reach them, check the form under "Visitors" on their web site below. You need to let them know what you'd be interested in seeing and when, so they can try to schedule a volunteer.

Leather, in all forms!! Juan Lopez

by VeronicaG about Juan Lopez

At Juan Lopez a smartly dressed saleswoman presented several different purses for me to examine and pointed out the attributes of each one. She was extremely helpful!

This luxurious leather shop offered purses, belts, coats, etc. My daughter-in-law was taking a leather jacket back as a gift and they made it to order in two or three days. We had it in hand before departing Buenos Aires. I can't say enough about this shop! I bought two well made, stylish purses for $162 total. They'll last for a long time due to their exquisite craftmanship. LEATHER!!!!!!!!!!! So well made they are worth the price!
