To the horsemen of Almonte, nature is a religion, and herding defines them

For Spain’s Almonte horsemen, a five-centuries-old tradition called ‘La Saca de las Yeguas’ (roughly translated as ‘The Rounding of the Mares’) isn’t just work – it’s central to their identity. Their annual journey through rural Spain helps them preserve a culture and maintain a sense of harmony with their surroundings. Glen Milner’s brief film on the tradition, which combines stunning images of the Spanish countryside with poignant narration from a Spanish horseman, is an inspiring a reflection on the value of bloodlines and a respect for the natural world.

Director: Glen Milner

Producer: Amy Tinkler
