Gerardo “Jerry” Diaz, a fourth-generation charro, or traditional Mexican horseman, continues the traditions that originated with his great grandfather more than 150 years ago. The charro tradition emerged in west-central Mexico, and features riders dressed in colorful costumes participating in Mexico’s national sport, a version of rodeo called the charreada.
Jerry started his charro career in the early 1980's and has been a success ever since, bringing his talents to western events and rodeos. He is known for his from-the-heart performances that leave audiences breathless.
His professionalism is evident and his commitment to charro tradition is one of his main focuses. Jerry, along with wife Staci and son Nicolas, can be seen throughout North America performing with their skilled equestrian partners. The Diaz family lives in New Braunfels, Texas, where they operate Three Mile Creek Ranch, a 50-acre horse operation.
