Escaramuza : Why I Ride

Samanth Mayorga Castillo explains what draws her to the sport of escaramuza. The love she feels for her horse, the lessons she's learned from this female discipline within charreria. She´s a member of the escaramuza team Fiesta Tapatia from the Metropolitan Charro Association.

The photographs and audio were taken during the escaramuza fair in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the charro association Charros de Pedregal in Mexico City, on March 16, 2013 by photographers Leslie Mazoch and Chico Sanchez.
