Like I promised, here are pictures of the caballos and Spanish riders we got to see demonstrate their skills at the Paza de Toros (Bull fighting ring). They don't do bull fights much any more, but the demonstration these horses put on was absolutely fabulous! I went with my friends, Elder and Hermana Castillo, and we went into it not being quite sure what we were in for. We were totally delighted with what we found. The moves were similar to some of what we got to see in Jerez at the Royal Riding School, but we got to be closer and this time we got to take pictures! So prepare to be inundated :)
|Another beautifully colored horse that did lots of quick stops|
and backing in his routine.
|This horse worked taking his cues from just the|
reins and a quirt. He was very excitable, but
did an awesome job!
This elegant lady did most of the same moves using a side-saddle! Very impressive.
|Part of the "grand finale"|
