Cowboys' Contest or Coleadera
The contest take place in a rectangular track.
At one end of the track, the cowboys wait for their turn to perform.
The cattle is formed in this narrow corral, so they come out one by one to be chased by the contestants.
The trapdoor opens and the clock starts to tick.
The rider grabs the cow's tail.
He pulls with the right force and angle, and...
The cow goes down in a perfect performance.
After each ran, cattle are brought to a wider corral, so the can rest and be fresh for another run if it is needed.
A lot of people attend these contests.
Our music is never far away from such an event.
This a very traditional activity for the countryside people, who are usually small to medium cattle raisers. Many people attend this type of events. Usually, after the cowboy contest a tipico music ball is held.
