This beautiful young girl is proudly riding on a handsome horse all by herself.  She shows a lot of confidence… Perhaps, she could be our future Miss Rodeo:

Hope you enjoyed the virtual tour of this special parade. Cowboys are coming, stay tuned 🙂

Notes: 

  • Here is a great link to Escaramuza, it has a documentary information: http://onlyagame.wbur.org/2012/09/29/escaramuza. Thanks to Angeline for sharing the link.
  • The Asociacion de Charros de San Antonio actively supports and preserves the Mexican tradition, art, culture, and history.
  • Escaramuza presents a sport with historical roots in the Mexican revolution. It follows Las Azaleas, a gutsy team of women rodeo riders vying to represent the U.S. at the National Charro Championships in Mexico. Escaramuza, or “skirmish,” describes both the daredevil horseback ballets, ridden sidesaddle at top speed, and the intensity of the competition season.  Read more….

    • It was a well-organized event! They did the parade with such a pride. It was a kickoff of a 18-day rodeo and livestock shows. We are going to see rodeo tomorrow, but they don’t allow to bring cameras 😕

  4. Glad to see a part deux of this, and will look forward to the next installment. It testifies how the street reqlly is perfect for this parade. It’s not so hard or frightening to ride a horse for me. Maybe I can be the next Mr. Rodeo. Although, the whole Texas might turn into shambles after that. 😆 Lovely images of lovely ladies.
