International Horse Fair

On Thursday March 28th we (Edson, a friend and I) spent the day at the International Horse Fair in Texcoco, State of Mexico.

There were various horse shows throughout the day, with opportunities for (paid) horse rides in between. 

I liked this miniature horse's hairdo.

We saw the Voladores de Papántla.

And I pretended to fit in with a cowboy hat.

There were amusement park rides - we rode on this one:

We also saw a tradicional dances show. This particular performance was with the youngest girls - so cute!

We caught the end of the Escaramuza Charra (cowgirls) show.

(Granny Pat - If you're reading this, I took the
hat off to eat and just put it back on for the photo)

We saw one more show in the evening, including two very little riders! I think one was 5 and rode with supervision and the other was 8 and rode on his own.

That night, there were SO MANY banda groups. You could pay to have them play, but with all the groups playing at the same time it was hard to distinguish one from another. It reminded me of the mariachi bands in Garibaldi, except with banda! Just look at all the tubas!
