Is in Sabucedo, a very small town of Orense in Galizian Country where men and recently women realices the traditional "Rapa das Bestas".
"A Rapa das Bestas" consist in go to the wild horses into the mountains that sorround the town and made they to come back to the town. When the horses are in place, they took them into "El Curro", a stone theatre where they cut they hair and clean them from bugs and parasites, also some of them are marked and registered.
"La Besta" is the original wild horse of those mountains for decades, being documented in a lot of ancient documents as the horses who ride the celtics who lived here a lot of years ago.
In old days horse's hair was used to make ropes and strings, now is a present for some of the assistants.
During those days Sabucedo have a 4 days party, with typical food and music, concerts and a lot of fun!
When "A Rapa" finished the horses are setting free with the other horses into the mountain waiting maybe for the next year.
