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.”
Escaramuzas gathered Saturday in Guadalajara. Their riding uniforms were elaborate and beautiful.
This young escaramuza looks kind of tired.
But their efforts paid off — 129 escaramuzas turned out, successfully setting a new record.
You can watch the escaramuzas perform and receive their record in this Spanish-language newscast:
