Whatever your thoughts on bullfighting, you have to hand it to the horses; they are simply incredible. High-caliber dressage and cutting horses have always had my utmost respect, I think watching them perform is absolutely magical. A good rejoneo horse is like a combination of the two; its really something else to see them in action.

Very dangerous sport. But that horse is amazing!!! Think of all the hard work someone had to put into it to make it be able to listen to legs that well!!!

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

MY GOD!!! HE can MOVE!!!!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

Ah well, YouTube took down the video. Hope everyone got to see it.

Here's another Lusitano doing something a little less dangerous, but no less impressive. Nice choreography, the rider really does look like a centaur during some of those moves. The video quality starts out crappy but gets better, I promise:)
