In the town of San Bartolome de Pinares, horses are ridden through bonfires the night before the day celebrating Saint Antony the abbot, the patron saint of animals. The tradition, which is reported to be 500 years old, is meant to purify and protect the animal for the year ahead

Awesome pictures, but can't they at least give the horses some eye protection

Makes for amazing viewing but can't help feeling for the animals. Still quite mild compared to other Spanish pursuits like skewering bulls to death or throwing goats out of bell towers.
