WILD HORSES

A film by Juan Rayos

Wild horses have had their manes and tails clipped in Sabucedo (Galicia, Spain) for 350 years as a part of a deworming and hygienic old ritual. The horses are taken from the countryside into the "curro", a rounded corral, where they are cropped by the "aloitadores", the local wrestlers who immobilize the horse with their bare hands. Desde hace 350 años se rapa a los caballos salvajes de Sabucedo.
