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….
