In this July 29, 2016 photo, 2-year-old cowboy Wrangler Ponce pours water into a wheelbarrow serving as a water troff for the horses at his parents farm in Sancti Spiritus, central Cuba. In the Cuban countryside, many children learn to ride a horse before they learn to ride a bicycle as well as skills like roping and riding along with more practical education. Those who grow up to be the best start farm- and ranch-related studies at local universities without passing the difficult national entrance exam. (AP Photo/Ramon Espinosa)
