This fiesta dates back to the 15th century and is held every year in the first week of July. It comprises a noble confrontation between man and horse.
At the celebration, young people from Sabucedo and the surrounding area (Pontevedra province, Region of Galicia) head for the mountains at dawn. Their aim is to find wild horses living in the area, bring them back to the village and cut their manes. When night falls, they all come together to enjoy food, music and wine.
