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.
