My Unforgettable Andean Adventure: "The Great Gaucho Gamble" February 2025

Embark on a Journey of Courage and Resilience.

In the shadow of the majestic Andes Mountains, a tale of determination and spirit is about to unfold. My name is Aurangzeb Mubashar, and I'm on the brink of undertaking an extraordinary quest that challenges the bond between horse and rider, testing our limits against the breathtaking backdrop of Patagonia, Argentina.

From humble beginnings, rehearsing debates in front of a makeshift podium, to representing my country in mounted archery, my life has been a testament to the power of dreams and hard work. Inspired by legends like Buck Brannaman and Clinton Anderson, I've dedicated my life to the noble art of horsemanship, forging an unbreakable bond with my equine partners.

Now, the Andes call to me, inviting me to a race that spans over 500 kilometers of its most unforgiving terrain. As an endurance rider, tentpegger, and horseback archer, I've prepared for this moment, but to make this dream a reality, I need your support.

The Challenge: The Great Gaucho Gamble
Your Support Can Make the Difference

The journey ahead is not just a race; it's a testament to human and equine spirit. To step onto this international stage and proudly bear my country's flag, I'm facing a daunting financial hurdle of $20,000. This covers everything from registration to training, gear, and the logistical maze of preparing for such an epic undertaking.

Gear and Preparation: From helmets to horseshoes, gearing up for the race is an adventure in itself.
