Wow, amazing! My mom and I really enjoyed watching that, thanks for posting it

And the bull isn't tortured to death. Yes those spears aren't nice, but overall the bulls lead much nicer lives then most cows. And the death is quick, they don't just Stab it to death with those little spears

Wooow! That is an AMAZING horse!! I would never risk my pony or horses that way though.. Just picturing little Gonzo or Rupert or Zuzu in there place makes me sick.. :\ The cows are tortured that much.. we raise cattle at my barn and I'm sure they're killed a lot less pleasently.. O.O

Oh, I know. Working cattle my whole life, I have seen more than one horse get gored by cattle horns. I have had 2 horses get taken completely down by either a bull or a mama cow on the fight while I was riding. Of course, my horses are taught to stand their ground and not run away. But the thought of any of mine in there with me purposfully provoking the bull just scares me.

wow! that horse is amazing!!

Poor bull... i know the spears don't do a lot of damage but im sure they hurt... it would be like someone sticking us with a needle over and over, it only leaves a little mark but still hurts like hell.

After watching that, I am totally in awe...

Like everyone else said, EPIC HORSE. Poor bull, though. I think that part is horrible... however, the horse's amazing abilities almost make up for the bull's abuse... almost.

I wanna horse like that ;-;

My jaw seriously just hit the floor...that horse's precision and accuracy is astounding! But I guess it HAS to be otherwise it gets a horn in the butt I've never seen this sport in action to be honest, and the layer of fat that bull has, I doubt through his adrenalin he even FELT the tiny poke. Not saying it's good or anything, but there are worse sports out there.

I'm still amazed by that horse...can't imagine the training that went into him! He knows his job and knows it well.
