Juan Carrillo, a Kumeyaay on horseback sits in the saddle next to the old church and talks to a group of his relatives in front of the little Kumeyaay store in San Jose de la Zorra.
Indian horses are still very much in use on these remote tribal ranches rancheros in Mexico.
SMART INDIAN HORSE
Smart Indian horse, or great Indian horseman?:
The Native American rider appeared to be an excellent horseman and even had this horse walking sidways.
Further, he would just leave the Indian horse and it would not wander away like the other horses , it just stayed right where he left it.
