The first half of a two-part series. John Thomson and Simon Day head off to Argentina to learn the ways of the country's rugged cowboys and national icons. After a hair-raising, pot-hole dodging drive, they arrive at their home for a week of intense training before setting of on their three-day ride in the wilds of Patagonia. Sounds fun, could be a tip for a holiday if you're fans of South American cowboys. Don't act like you're not.
