MANUEL TRIGO DOMA VAQUERA SEMINAR
February 7th & 8th 2009 – Santa Fe Horse Park, New Mexico
Discover the world of Doma Vaquera and appreciate how the Spanish cowboy performs maneuvers with his highly trained equine partner with expert timing and execution out on the ranches (Fincas) of fighting bulls in Spain.
It is a true partnership. Watching the Vaquera horse and rider work in precise harmony and rhythm is fascinating and thrilling to behold. Turns on the forehand, turns on the haunches in canter, changes of lead, half and full passes, rein back, immediate halts and full gallops- all ridden with one hand – are some of the everyday movements the Spanish horse and rider must master to protect themselves from the horns of a bad-tempered bull.
