This weekend, a group of escaramuzas (rough translation: cowgirls) came together in an effort to set a Guinness World Record for most members of their sport together in one place. They succeeded — in style.

Escaramuzas are part of La Charreria, a Mexican rodeo circuit. One escaramuza mom describes the practice as a “hybrid of Mexican and North American equestrian arts” and “something akin to a ballet on horseback.”

Officials from the Guinness Book of World Records required a gathering of at least 100 escaramuzas for a new record to be set. It would be the first world record for escaramuzas ever.

Escaramuzas gathered Saturday in Guadalajara. Their riding uniforms were elaborate and beautiful.
