A Buffalo woman is helping to popularize a different form of horse training. The technique of garrocha originated in the Spanish bull-fighting scene.
Karen Weaver, originally from Voorheesville, New York, discovered the method of training while watching videos of the bullfighters herding bulls. She is one of a handful of American practitioners of the art.
