MEXICO, Chihuahua, July 12-19, 2010. Undaunted by blistering desert temperatures, the 15th annnual "Cabalgata Villista," an epic horse trek from Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua to Hacienda Canutillo in Durango met with enthusiastic crowds on its route southward through Satevo and Valle de Zaragoza. Armed with fresh horses and a patriotic spirit, new "jinetes" (riders) join the cavalcade from small towns along the way, which welcome the participants of this long dusty journey. Started in 1996 by José Socorro Salcido Gómez, the "cabalgata" in memory of Mexican revolutionary general Pancho Villa has a particular poignancy this bicentennial year.
