Honoring the animals?

From the Big Picture:

"A man rides a horse through a bonfire, Jan. 16, 2012 in the small village of San Bartolome de Pinares, Spain. In honor of San Anton, the patron saint of animals, horses are ridden through the bonfires on the night before the official day of honoring animals in Spain." 

Translation: some nut did this centuries ago and now it's a tradition.
