Acoso y derribo is a traditional sport in the Doma vaquera tradition of Spain, in which cattle are brought to the ground by two riders, the garrochista and the amparador, using the garrocha or lance.[1] The horses used are often of Hispano-Árabe stock. The corral for this competition is divided into four areas. In 2010 the Real Federación Hípica Española decided to eliminate this competition from the official list.
