The folklore of Rio Grande do Sul, dignifies the magnitude of the gaucho soul, legendary in the history and true lover of his brave companion: the horse. Do not conceive a gaucho without his horse. “Is the horse that open the doors, and with a horse, you blend in Rio Grande do Sul.” It is around the fire in a real invitation prose and warmth that the gaucho welcomes visitors with a chimarrão (hot typical drink made from erva-mate).
