The gauchos were impressive horseman. They could make their horses walk sideways. One morning they rounded up some mares that were having a great time around the lodge, and the mares did not want to go into the corral. They gauchos walked their mounts sideways and nudged them into the corral.
Gauchos also dress with a lot of flare. The beret is de rigeur. In the rain they wear leather capes.
