I'm talking more along the lines of showcasing the dancing/trick horses.
There are diffrent types of charro, I like to train bailadores. (The dancing horses you see in parades, Mexican partys, or in compitition.)
My hermosa dances, lays down, bows, does the spanish walk, and the piaffe. Which is a typical training in the charro industry. (Unless you use your horse for trail really) I just find the whole disipline really fun and exciting.
Here's a little info from wiki on the rodeo's:
In Mexico, charro is a term referring to a traditional horseman or cowboy of Mexico, originating in the State of Jalisco. In the rest of Mexico, including the part that was annexed by the United States in 1848, the equivalent term was "vaquero". In Spain, a charro is a native of the province of Salamanca, especially in the area of Alba de Tormes, Vitigudino, Ciudad Rodrigo and Ledesma. It is likely that the Mexican charro tradition derived from Spanish horsemen who came from Salamanca and settled in Jalisco.
The traditional Mexican charro is known for colorful clothing and participating in charreadas, a type of rodeo. The charreada, or corrida, is the national sport in Mexico. And is regulated by the Federación Mexicana de Charrería. There are more charros in the state of Jalisco than any other state in Mexico. Jalisco has also won more national championships than any other state.
XD Not to mention I love the Banda and Ranchero music XD Lol.
