Spanish horse wrestling festival

Men walk among horses during the "Rapa Das Bestas" event in Mougas, northwestern Spain, June 14, 2009. An ancient festival in Galicia Spain, the Rapa Das Bestas is an old practice of "Taming the Beasts", dating back to the Bronze Age. Men and women alike would wrestle the untamed horses to the ground with their hands and arms to cut their manes and tails. It's a noble tradition where man pits his strength against a beast without ropes or weapons and only using his bare hands and courage.
