Horses for Courses

An event we hadn't been to before.

As part of the annual festivities, there is a horse show held in the bullring in the afternoon (before the bulls arrive)!

Although I am not a horsey person, it was fun to watch the control the riders displayed, doing figure of eights, and cantering around. I find it intruiging how they can get the horses to do their fancy steps, although I have seen our little neighbour training his horse to do it.

To be honest, this was quite an amateur show, and some of the costumes left a bit to be desired, but it was still good entertainment, and free!
