En El Redondel Del Toros
       

Sabaneros, Costa Rican cowboys, ride & rope at small local rodeos called montaderas during the Fiestas Patronales every winter in Guanacaste province. Astride their Criollo horses sabaneros figure heavily in the Costa Rican national identity. Their skill on horseback is the legacy of more than 100 years of cattle ranching in Guanacaste and their fearlessness astride and in front of an agitated bull is often fortified with Cerveza Pilsen at the montaderas, even as death in the ring is a real possibility. Since 2003 seventeen bull riders and many dozens of improvizados, local jackleg rodeo clowns, have been killed in the ring.
