I think bull fighting would be the coolest sport if only it was a lot safer for the hrose and the bull never ot hurt. Lol maybe we could try kitten fighting and we could tie a toy mouse to a string that is tied to the horses tail!!!! Lol, but I just adore the movements and ease in the movements they do.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

I would move my ass pretty quick and agile too is I had a half dead enraged bull wanting to kill me, lol.... I must say not trying to be a downer or anything, but usually those horses are trained very harshly to get that level of obedience, so where as it looks pretty, just think of what the horses go through to achieve that...

yes, they do train some hroses harshly to get that. But they also train some hroses harshly in jumping,anddressage, and reining, and any other sport with animals in it. There are also people that train them with paitence to :)

No, they don't with Merlin. And if you watch his ears and eyes he is clearly not afraid in the slightest bit. The sideways ears say concentration, not fear.

This is a different video with bits of training in it:


Not exactly harmful or harsh, IMO.

If it weren't for the brutality of the bull fighting, I'd like a go on Merlin!

I've always appreciated the agility and the "dance-like" qualities of bull-fighting, I just can't get past the killing of a bull. The training of Merlin is amazing, and there is a trust there between rider & Merlin...

Horses are God's apology for men.

I don't see what is wrong with killing the bull? I mean, 99.999999% of cattle get killed anyway!

I love Merlin, he is an amazing animal!
