Any activity that symbolizes union, pride and the revelation of Mexican talent must be celebrated and recognized. Speaking specifically about sports, where a positive camaraderie and ancestral history is instilled, this patriotic and humanistic feeling is uplifted.
In this case, we are not talking about football, wrestling or boxing as Mexican pride, but about equestrian sports related to horses, such as racing, cross-country or show jumping.
