Heroes commemorate 194 years of galloping for love to motherland and freedom
October 16, 2013
With their sight in horizon and with a shared ideal of motherland, honor and loyalty, rider and horse are joined in a single beat where the only important fact is crossing the Andean region to win victory and freedom of a country.
This is a bloody and historic fight telling about achievements of courageous creole knights who, without a doubt, rode their horses, grasped their lances and charged at the Spaniard oppression which was bleeding a Nation.
Today, 194 years later, that Nation commemorates the abnegation of those lancers that made the earth resound with their horses and thanks to their supreme sacrifice, could see the dawn, tasting the victory of a free, sovereign and peaceful country.
Under command of Colonel Juan José Rondón, those lancers were inflamed to see their people afflicted and humiliated by cruel foreigners who took advantage of the nobility of Colombian men and women.
Because of that and for love to their compatriots, the creole riders with their horses, as a perfect binomial, grasped their spears in combat and defeated the tormentor to give freedom to a Nation.
For their dedication and commitment, this is a well-deserved homage to the 1080 cavalry troops who are hardly complying with their constitutional mission.
