Paleteada and Aparte.. two Argentine horses' sports
I love horses! Last September, I visited an hacienda, 300 km far from Buenos Aires. I was lucky to may see and capture how they were training for two sports, Paleteada and Aparte
There, they breed " caballo criollo pura sangre" , or Creole horse pure sang.
Here two phrases said by the hacienda's owner, more eloquent that anything I could add…
"Man and horse’s souls understand each other perfectly, and they commune in incredible, inexplicable feelings."
"This is our land.. The unpredictable countryside that makes us always look at the sky and its soil that blends man and horse’s sweat.."
