What a Gaucho You Are! is the fourth episode of The Amazing Race 7.

Synopsis

Several teams plot to make up for a time penalty in the previous leg.

Several teams scramble to recover from a four-hour penalty to catch up with the front-running teams. Meanwhile, one Racer is thrown from a very stubborn horse while trying to complete a Roadblock and another Racer is driven to tears as an unsupportive teammate provokes them from the sidelines.[2]
