Cart and cattle in new challenge
Farmers are being invited to take part in an unusual sports tournament.
Tegueste is organising what is known as “Concurso de Manejo de Yuntas” on May 1st.
They will be asked to take part in a number of challenges organised by the town’s Cattle Association, using their carts and cattle. These will include going up slopes, across ploughed fields, turning on a point, zig zagging and driving between two fixed points.
Councillor for sports, Heliodoro Hernández Herrera said it was a pioneering competition, having been held in Tegueste in 2010 for the first time. It would make people appreciate the skills of the farmer when dragging a loaded cart.
Farmers can put their names forward by February 28th when there will be a draw to pick the ten competitors.
