Lienzo Charros De Jalisco - Horseback Riding Guadalajara - Mexico

A lively subculture of "charros" (Mexican cowboys) springs out of the gate every Sunday at noon in Guadalajara, when competitors from Jalisco and beyond come to this little arena to strut their stuff in the saddle. Dressed in their best (tight jackets, tight pants, slick boots, ties and sombreros to die for), the cowboys pull all matter of stunts, roping, wrestling and generally confusing the livestock--all to the delight of the 99.9 percent non-tourist crowd. A brass band with plenty of percussion kicks out rousing tunes to spur the participants on.

Any tips for other travelers:You can purchase inexpensive food (fresh fruit, "tortas ahogadas" or tamales or the like) or drinks (soft drinks or beer or "micheladas") outside the arena or sellers will come around during the rodeo.

Special things to bring:stadium seat, sunglasses, camera with long lens
