The official description goes like ‘Cabalgada de identidad Ruminahuense’.

Location: Sangolqui-Rumipamba.

Participants: Chagras de Ecuador aka Cowboys of Ecuador.

Event: a two day absolutely down to Earth parade-rodeo and what comes with it.

Day one: parade through Sangolqui, just outside of Quito, then lasso competition in Rumipamba, about 3,100 metres altitude, 40 minutes drive from town on a road I would have not found probably, but following the Police bus it was an easy and slow drive on a cobblestone road.

I took a huge amount of photos so this is Post No.1.
