Caballos Fufos Y Caballos Fuscos

Event Type:

Horses also play an important role in the celebrations on La Palma. The Caballos Fufos parade take place in Tazacorte, in the end of September to the music of the song “Vuela, vuela, palomita”. Around 20 horses, made out of cane covered with tissue paper, dance through the streets, led by a giraffe. The horses are lined up, facing each other.

In Fuencaliente, on the last Sunday of August in even years, horses can be heard neighing and the band strikes up the Horses’ Polka. This is the start of the caballos fuscos parade. It consists of horses, made out of cane covered by coloured papers, ridden by smart men wearing dark suits, a tie and a hat. They dance to the strains of this polka
