- Corrida de sortija
It was described by Hutchinson in 1868:"La Sortija" (the ring) is now-a-days the most frequent Gaucho sport, to be seen in Carnival and other festal times. It is played as follows. In the principal Plaza of the chief towns, and at about 5 pm, you will see placed in the centre of the main street, or principal Plaza, two upright wooden posts about ten feet high, crossed by a beam ... In the middle of this cross-beam, and underneath[,] is loosely suspended a small ring, not larger than a wedding-ring. A Gaucho, galloping at the fastest beneath this, is to bear off the ring on a bit of twig, about the calibre of an ordinary pencil, or the handle of a steel pen. Numberless are the failures, for knocking off, without retaining it on the stick, is not sufficient. But many, of course, are the successes, each of which is greeted by a "Viva!" "Viva!"—Thomas Hutchinson, The Paraná: with incidents of the Paraguayan war, and South American recollections, from 1861-1868 E. Stanford 1868
