Photographer's Note

At "siesta" time ( from 12 to 16 hours) when all activity stops to rest and sleep, in a small village of Salta I found these waiting horses

At the North of Argentina but mostly in Salta there are many fields with bushes with thorns and this horse has a skin to protect the rider's legs,this type of mount is common in this area of the country

I think there was a celebration and at such times people like traditional dress, more neat than when they work
