Do only men do Rodeos?
Andrea - November 08, 2007
Having bulls shoved up against a wall is much better that having them speared!!!
Helia Goodman - November 13, 2007
To answer Allison`s question: Until now only men have practiced this sport since it was the custom and only men have won the national championship; but there are a few girls that train and compete, as far as I know women have never requested to participate in these rodeo championships and I have asked the organizers and they say it would not represent an issue for a women to run bulls.

We went to Santiago on our way to Patagonia, with a very small budget,so we found our way to Pirque on our own,saw a rodeo and tried the wine, so, if you ever want to go on your own its is easy and not expensive!!

We arrive in Chile on Sept 16th. I noticed you said the rodeos would be taking place for the Ind. holidays. Do you happen to know if they will be going on the weekend after (Sat & Sun the 19th and 20th?) What time is the rodeo. Thank you very much.
