The Charreada is a competitive sporting event developed in Old Mexico on the Spanish haciendas. Today, the Charros (Mexican cowboys) and the Escaramuzas (Mexican horsewomen), gather together to honor this age-old tradition by competing in rodeo events on horseback as well as on foot. They wear traditional clothing and use traditional saddles and gear for their horses. The Charreada has been a part of Mexican culture since the colonial period.
