For the last six decades, the Asociación de Charros de San Antonio has championed charrería (often described as Mexican rodeo), competing throughout the year and attracting a diverse crowd each April with its beloved Fiesta event A Day in Old Mexico. Of the 10 official suertes (competitive roping and riding events performed in period costumes), the all-female escaramuza easily stands out as a fan favorite. Created during the 1950s and officially added to the charreada mix in 1992, the choreographed skirmish showcases a team of young ladies demonstrating precision skills while riding sidesaddle in colorful dresses named after Pancho Villa’s legendary companion Adelita. $5-$15, 1-6pm Sun, Charro Ranch, 6126 Padre Drive, (210) 396-9752, sacharros.org.  — BR
