Taking place every year across Galicia, Rapa das Bestas, or ‘Shearing of the Beasts,’ involves cutting the manes of semi-feral horses that live in the mountains. Horses are rounded up into enclosures called curros, foals are branded and the adults groomed before being freed. The best known is the Rapa das Bestas of Sabucedo, which occurs on the first weekend in July. © Javier Arcenillas. All rights reserved.
