I was just surfing youtube and found this. Please don't bite my head off because I personally hate the sport and probably would disagree with how these horses were trained but this is still phenomenal. It was a little hard to look past the animal cruelty toward the bull but the horse is just amazing. Look at the agility and athleticism. That is one very well trained horse for that discipline.

That horse is so athletic it's scary. He has perfect timing when dodging the bull and everything. Even though it's beyond horrible what they do to the bulls.

morganshow11 07-11-2009 03:07 PM

wait... what did he stick in the bull?

I think they are spears with colorful things attached. After the whole thing is over, the bull is killed and cooked. {:(


I think.

Geesh I'm happy if I can get a side pass of a few yards. That horse is sidestepping at mach speed :shock: Amazing!
I think they concider it an honor for the bull to be killed in such a manor.

That horse is amazing beyond words.

Bull fighting bulls live lifes of god's compared to the cows we eat every day. The colorful spears they stick them with during the bull fight do not actually injure the bull that much. They are only agitators. When it is time for the bull to be killed it is done with a spear directly to it's heart. The bull dies so quickly that it has little time to feel pain. It is the greatest dishonor a bullfighter can have to miss the heart and cause the bull a slow death.

And yes that horse is amazing as well as beautiful.
