This gaucho game is called sortija. It consists of a metal ring, which is placed high on an arch. Gauchos have to catch the small ring with a long wooden lance. This takes great horseman skills as well as a steady arm and sharp eyesight. The reward is always a kiss from a girl he chooses among the spectators. This old gaucho speared the ring and then gave it to my wife along with a kiss on the cheek.
