View of the public
Femal riders also participate in their own competition.
Some of the best tracks have flood lights so the event can continue into the night.
This event has been held for 30 years now. It began with teams from the traditional cattle provinces such as Chiriquí and Los Santos, but now almost all the provinces participate.
