Riding Off Into the Brazilian Sunset
Walk along the beaches of Trancoso and you are certain to see tourists trotting down the sand on horseback. There are a number of locals who lead horseback rides down the coast. But Etnia Club del Mar's staff works with a trusted outfitter that treats its horses humanely. I went for a two-hour ride at sunset along the deserted beaches of Coqueiros, Pedra Grande, and Itaquena. My guide had much more confidence in my riding than I did and continued to yell, "galliope," which made my horse fly across the sand. The experience was exhilarating. Our horses took a swim in the ocean before we headed back to Etnia via a trail through the national park. By the end of our ride I felt like a beach cowgirl.
