    Background: The Wild West came to Argentina at the weekend, when a group of hard-riding North American cowboys competed rodeo-style against the equally tough gauchos of the pampas. The two life-styles were on show at the 85th cattle and industrial fair in Buenos Aires.

    The gauchos rode and roped untamed horses. The cowboys, not to be outdone, gave a spectacular display of riding bulls.

    SYNOPSIS: The gauchos of Argentine and a group of North American cowboys competed in the not-so-gentle-art of roping cattle and horses at the weekend. The two-life styles were on show at the Buenes Aires cattle and industrial fair at the weekend. And the crowd gave a big hand to the visitors from the United States.....

    First into the rodeo ring, one of the gauchos giving riding lessons to an unbroken horse.

    Nothing there that the cowboys can't handle. So they take on some unbroken horses of their own.

    Now the cowboys go one better than the men from the pampas by rough-riding a bull......
    The gauchos retaliate by demonstrating their skill with the "pial", used in Argentine for roping horses.....
