Yesterday hundreds and hundreds of fancy horses and riders graced the main parade route of the city of Estelí.
These are the best teams and individuals in the whole country of Nicaragua. The riders have taught their prized mounts how to dance to the rhythm of typical Spanish music and they can do their high-stepping prancing without music, responding only to the light and deft touches of their trainer's riding crops. It was a sensational show that lasted all day and into the cool mountain air of the Central American night. http://www.spanishconversation.net
