Paul Coudenys

1966

If anyone can say "been there, done that" then it’s Paul Coudenys!
Paul, born in Flanders Belgium, was once in his previous life a farrier. At age 21, he travelled backpacking around the globe, 3 years later and with a luggage full of travel and riding experiences he returned to Belgium. During his "long journey", he worked as a blacksmith shoeing horses at the polo club in Singapore, as a blacksmith and cowboy at a cattle station in Australia, as a gaucho in South America and as a rider in too many places and countries to mention.
In 1996 he founded “Hippo-Trek” and became one of the pioneers of worldwide riding holidays in Europe. Paul rode horses in 53 different countries and is perhaps one of the most experienced trail riders in the world. Loving the great horse culture and hospitality in Latin America Paul decided to move to Brazil in 2010. He lives in the southern state of Santa Catarina, home of the South American gaucho (cowboy). After years of experience in organizing and guiding equestrian holidays and riding expeditions around the world, he now only concentrates on  trail rides and equestrian tourism in Latin America. He is guiding all the riding trips himself and assures you participating at the best horse treks in Latin America.
Paul is also co-founder and president of ALATCE; Asociación Latinoamericana de Turismo y Cultura Ecuestre. (Latin American Association of Equestrian Tourism and Culture)
He speaks 6 languages, loves humor and life, is a very social person and knows like no other how to take you on a ride on the wild side!

Daniel Camargo Klein

1975

Daniel, the big & friendly boss of the farm “Fazenda Chapada”,..shoots and drinks faster than his own shadow…loves to receive guests, to ride, to hug and to party. Daniel is always around somewhere to give a helping hand.
 

He is proud of his Gaucho Culture, loves the great outdoors and his hunger to explore every inch of Coxilha Rica on horseback is insatiable. Nothing makes him happier if he can barbeque meat from his own livestock and serve it to the guests. (Brazilian Churrasco!).


He goes merrily through life, is a natural helper and loves providing service …and nobody does that with greater conviction as Daniel.
