What do the Spanish do when they are not bull-fighting? They wrestle wild horses.
More about the 'Rapa das bestas' festival
The Rapa das bestas is an ancient festival in Galicia, Spain.
People gather all the untamed horses in a corral, where men and women of all ages wrestle them to the ground with their bare hands to cut their manes and tales out and brand them. This fiesta goes on for about three days starting the first Saturday of July.
