Working Horses in Costa Rica

Global Horse Culture Archive on June 14, 2008, 19:15

This is just a brief moment I found engaging - two ranch hands bringing some cattle down from a pasture in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. The horses are Costa Rican Criollos. The banging noise near the end is one of the cowboys slapping his whip against the saddle to urge the cattle on. You can also hear a truck on a highway a mile away - the wind was carrying the sound that day. Notice how deep the road bed is, from decades of hooves wearing it down.
