Sabucedo, Spain, July 7, 2007—A young man struggles to hold on to his horses during a roundup in northwestern Spain on Saturday.

The annual corraling of wild horses, which live in the mountains near Sabucedo, dates back to the 16th century.

As part of the three-day "Rapa das Bestas" festival, young people of the village round up and later break horses for riding to demonstrate their skills. The most skilled horsemen, known as "agarradores," will calm an animal enough to shear its mane and brand its hide.

This year's event attracted more than 2,000 people, London's Metro newspaper reported.
