Little girls get bigger every day

Melissa birthdayThose of you who visited our charro (rodeo ring) in Bucerias last season will remember being delighted by the horsemanship of an adorable little girl.  The ladies are known as “escaramuzas”  (“scaramouche, scaramouche will you do the fandango?”)  – or skirmishers.  They wear colourful full skirts and sombreros and fearlessly gallop into the ring, reining in their horses in a cloud of dust.  They perform various manoeuvres including the precisely timed high speed criss-crossing encounter – and they do it all side saddle!

Melissa was the darling of us all – and still is !  She has just celebrated her 6th birthday at the Tercera Edad facility, located opposite the charro, an ideal party venue.  Balloons, pinatas, a huge gooey cake and party bags to go –  Feliz cumpleanos ! The next display by the escaramuzas will be in December – we’ll tell you the date as soon as we know it.
