Eye on Texas: San Antonio Charro Ranch

Darren Abate, San Antonio Charro Ranch

A charro (cowboy) prepares his horse prior to a charreada (rodeo) at the San Antonio Charro Ranch. The ranch is one of my favorite places in San Antonio to go when I want to make photos just for myself. The tradition and skill displayed by the horsemen and horsewomen is always impressive to me and there is never a shortage of pictures.
