YOUNG CHARRO

YOUNG CHARRO / Panasonic DMC-FZ20 / ACDSee / Snapseed

The Mexican Charreada, like its American counterpart, the Rodeo, is a family affair. From toddlers to old timers, male and female participants, all engage in keeping their traditions alive. This is a common theme among horse cultures worldwide.

I photographed this handsome young horseman at the Lienzo Charro Constituyentes, in México, D. F., in 2011. This is a large arena, in a very large city, but it has a small town feel that I like, and I visit there often.
