Living new frontiers can always be a new beginning, so we try to convey in our scripts a palette of unforgettable emotions. In this, we will live unique moments, bringing together natural beauty, local culture and something more than special: the Roraima Lavaliers. Native Brazilian horses of free nature, descendants of animals of the Andalusian and Garrano breed, brought by the settlers who in the Lavrados de Roraima found freedom and adapted to the local environment, living daily the way of survival. Our destination will be the interior of the state of Roraima, an earth-smelling interior with typical food, igarapés and centuries-old trees like Samaúma (Ceiva Petranda), the largest tree in the Amazon. In these lands, we can go horse riding listening to birds singing, and with a little luck find the Tamandua Flag (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), an animal symbol of the Lavrado.

This day will be the moment to visit Boa Vista, capital of Roraima, a state bordering Venezuela and Guyana, before continuing to our destination: Amajarí, to the Lavrados. Boa Vista is a city far from the traditional tourist axis of Brazil, so little known, but very interesting as its modernist architecture, with great avenues, squares and the famous Rio Branco, that cuts across the city and where we will take a tour in the late afternoon. Of course, it will be a special moment, but there is nothing written that explains the excitement of this tour. At the end of the day we will meet at the edge of the pool to feel the breeze of the night and have a brief briefing about our expedition that begins, to discuss the experiences that we will live in the coming days. After all, this trip to the interior of Roraima is a new frontier of rural Brazil that opens and few people, until the present day, had the possibility to live. Recalling that, for this reason, few support points are available during the course of our expedition to meet the Roraima wild horses. Therefore, we will adopt a trip called “Margarida”, because every day we will leave this one of the most traditional farms of the State; are the rural producers who create a troupe of Lavradeiros and that in the last years receive anxious visitors wanting to know the local rural universe. Bacabal Farm, the place where we will stay and return later in the afternoon, after going through different trails and getting to know several biomes.

Upon arrival, our hosts will welcome us. This is a farm with good conditions of care and lodging, but remember, we are in a rural environment with open spirit for these rural experiences. We will make a quick atmosphere, knowing where we will stay later, a lunch prepared with affection and tradition of this farm. A brief respite to rest, we are ready to begin our equestrian activities. Let us go to the field to meet the troupe of “Lavradeiros Horses”, our partners in the next days of this journey. An interesting fact is that an approach and choice of our peers begins to happen naturally and so we will take a short walk around the farm, for ambiance. At the beginning of the night, a talk will take place with the Babazinho, owner of the farm that together with his family receive with the art of the traditional hosts of Roraima, telling the saga of the generations when they unfolded these lands.

This trail has an average duration of three to four hours, according to the stops for observation of the natural life with the right to a quick stop for a brief rest, water and light snacks. After this rest, not only for us but also for the troupe of lavender horses, we go towards to Várzea Lake, a nursery of several species of fish.

Our way will be between lavrados and forests with wildlife observation, with a stop in the bend of the river in the “Desce de Bunda” in the rapids of the “River Amajarí”. As the people of those lands call us what allows us before the lunch a bath in the icy waters, which helps us rest the body, mind and make our picnic in the field. For, on such days, the pleasure of eating in the country, resting and returning quietly will always bring us experiences similar to those experienced by the daily life of the matutos of the earth. The arrival at the farm scheduled at sunset, entitled to a coffee with delicacies prepared with care. Also, who wants to continue in the equestrian arts, how about participating in the treatment of your horse, taking the junk and giving a bath, after all, they deserve it. A break for the bath and then dinner, chat with people from the local community, such as the famous leather artisan who mastered the art of networking and causation.

On this day, lunch will be in one of these typical farms that from the beginning, was part of the clearing of these corners. Stops to admire the rich and unique landscapes of this abundant nature usually happen every three hours, because, besides us, our horses need to rest a little. A tip during the journey of great travelers on horseback, which instead of being always mounted, go down a little and pull the animals for a few moments, both to strengthen our relations with these partners, as well as to stretch our legs a little. This attitude will do them and you. Indigenous communities and flour houses will know the manioc farms and the stories of the missionaries who have passed there; they are attractive beyond the gallop. Regional lunch on the historic farm that we will arrive at about 12.00 with butter cheese and the Paçoca de Roraima that is made from cassava flour and dried meat will be very welcome. Then a well-deserved rest with an interpretive walk through Amajarí, the forests in small forest islands, in the middle of the river.
