Cristo Rey Pilgrimage Ride
Central Mexico Mexico

Be part in one of the most important equestrian pilgrimages in Mexico.

This is a tradition that is over 500 years old and which gathers thousands of Mexican riders at the foot of the monument of Cristo Rey (Christ the King), on the Cubilete mountain, considered the Geographical center of Mexico. 

This yearly event takes place every January, as a sign of faith and devotion to a tradition of equestrian pilgrimage. This exceptional event starts to attract the attention of riders from all over the world. Be part of this old tradition and be one of the first foreign riders to live it.
