If you thought wild horses were only a thing of the Wild West, think again. This Galician rodeo, a round up of the local wild horses to cut short their manes, dates back to the 15th century.
A noble confrontation between man and horse taking place every year on the first weekend of July in Sabucedo (A Estrada municipality, Pontevedra province) in the region of Galicia.
The tradition starts very early in the morning with the church bells ringing very loud. At 6;30 am all the village is awake.
Good food and music is never missing in this event.
Around 3 or 4 pm, the young people of the village come back to town after a long day with the horses in the mountains.
It is the beginning of the festivities!!!
Octopus with potatoes, Churrasco o barbecued steak, local honey, fruits, corn bread, cold meat and ring-shaped pastry.
The music: Local artists playing the bagpipes all day long….
