“Caballo Dorado” is the dance floor song that makes an appearance at quince parties, baptisms, weddings, school gyms. Some people call it, “Payaso del Rodeo,” because it’s the songs real name, or whatever. No matter what you call it, there are definitely some moments you did quite nail it. Guess what? These people are in the same boat, but their mistake is on the internet.

This whole group needs to come off the dance floor.

What. Is. Going. On. Here. *rubs temples* So first you have guy #1 in the beige jacket who is just totally off beat, then you have the whole group in the middle who are just doing their best to hop on two feet. Granted, the group at the front is pretty on point but the rest are just doing their own thing. At the 1:00 mark, craziness ensues when the music picks up the tempo. Dude in the black hat and black button down is doing the most to just keep up. Gotta give him a gold star for trying!

So much is happening in this video in so little time.

Tbh, even the quinceañera looks like she is lost before the dance starts. Someone falls down right at the beginning and there seems to be some confusion about the steps. It is one of the most chaotic dance scenes and it also looks like so much fun.

Sound off, trust us.

Some times you shouldn’t try changing things. Some times things are perfect the way they are. This version of “Payaso de Rodeo” gets really flashy really fast and before you know it people are falling down.

Heels can be your worst enemy on the dance floor.

Well, this looks like one festive party! Neon leis, masquerades and having such a good time that you topple over. It’s ok, it happens to the best of us when the music starts getting faster.

Pro tip: dance ‘Caballo Dorado’ next to your closest friends and family so you have someone to pick you up when you take a fall.

Act like nothing happened and everyone else will forget.

There’s nothing stronger than being able to pick yourself up and carry on with your dance. It is an impressive move if you make it really smooth and all one motion. Some of us have had to come up with moves just to cover up our falls and slips.

Make up your own dance and just own it.

If all else fails and you just really do not know when you are supposed to step, hop, slide, be like this girl and just sway like a tree. Once you notice her in the back while all the other girls are dancing around her, you come to realize this dance move might be the safest way to dance the song.
