Rapa Das Bestas – Spanish festivals struggle with horses

The “Rapa das bestas” is an ancient festival in Galicia, Spain for the domestication of thirion. Men and women will fight together with the wild horses using only their hands, so as to stop their manes and tails them.
It is a noble tradition, in which the man replies power towards the “beasts” without weapons, using only their hands and the courage. The festival lasts 3 days, and after the horses are released back into the wild. The festival does not include hardness and deaths.
