HORSES BY THE THOUSANDS
A gaucho celebration
Every year, in Tacuarembo, in the north of Uruguay, the gauchos gather to celebrate their culture and traditions. This event is called the “patria gaucha".
For a week, they engage in all sorts of equestrian games, for all to see that they are the best horseriders in the world. People come from all over the country, even from Brazil and Argentina, to witness historical reenactments produced by organisations that compete for a very coveted title.
