WATCH: The Charro Legacy

SAN ANGELO, TX -- For 89 years now the San Angelo Stock Show and Rodeo has showcased some of the best cowboys and cowgirls in the world. While the rodeo continues its long-standing tradition this year it came in the form of the Mexican horsemen or otherwise known as the Charros. 

Tomas Garcilazo, a third-generation charro along with his son 6-year-old Louis captured the eyes and the hearts of those in attendance at the third and fifth performances of the 2021 San Angelo Rodeo. 

The work with the rope and horses was truly a sight to see, but along with the showmanship comes with protecting a legacy and furthering the charro tradition. 

Watch as Tomas and his son Louis talk about performing as charros and what it means to continue a long-standing family tradition.

Meanwhile, if you missed the Charro performance from the Garcilazos they'll be back next week. This San Angelo LIVE! Rodeo Piece is presented by The Autoplex and Angelo MRI
