Charrería is a traditional practice of livestock herding communities in Mexico. Initially used to help herders from different estates better coexist, these days purpose-built associations and schools assist in continuing transmission of the tradition, also considered a sport, by training community members up to competition level. Different categories of charrería are performed by male and female practitioners in front of an audience. It is considered an important aspect of community identity and way of transferring social values to younger generations.
