Jamie José Michel Velázquez, who attends the Dr. Ángel María Garibay K. High School of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM), won first place in the First “Charro” Competition in Veracruz. Charro is the Mexican term for horsemen and Velázquez won first place overall, receiving high scores in all events.

Velázquez is in his last year of high school and has participated in many horsemanship events at the regional, state and national levels. This award at the state level is the first step for Velázquez to advance to the national competition, which will take place in October.

He belongs to the Veracruz Charros Federation and hopes to join an association in the State of Mexico.

Velázquez said that the competition included both individual and team events. He received high scores in all the events, including reining and “the leap of death.” He said that his success can bring more attention to the horsemanship community in Mexico, which even though it is the national sport, is often overlooked.
