Just to correct that the banderilleros don't ride in horseback, but are on foot.Torero a general name for "bullfighter".
Toreador the older name for a bullfighter on horseback- now, more commonly called a rejoneador.
Banderillero another bullfighter on horseback who "stabs" the bull with little flags that have barbed ends.
Matador this is the main bullfighter who fights on foot and who kills the bull (Matar- to kill).
All the above is very simplified. There are many levels and specialists that each have their traditional names.
You are correct, and that is what I thought from seeing bullfights in the movies. When I came across that (on horseback) definition on some bullfighting site, I figured I must be wrong. But now that I have checked again, I cannot even find that site. Anyway, it is the picador that is on horseback with a lance-like stick to poke at and tease the bull. Thanks.Just to correct that the banderilleros don't ride in horseback, but are on foot.
Many people are opposed to bullfighting in Spain based on the fact it is cruel to the bull (which is an undeniable fact). But the fact is that a bull that dies in the ring has one of the best lives a bovine can have up to that point. It gets to roam in vast states with the best grass, mates with multiple cows at will, and it is pampered. Then the time comes to die in the ring (though bulls that show exceptional bravery are pardoned sometimes).
Putting things in perspective, I would sign up to be a bullfighting bull right now as opposed to a regular farmed bull that spends all its live in dismal conditions and ends in an undignified manner with a bolt through the head anyway.
Also, bullfighting is an extremely dangerous occupation and requires great bravery. You have no idea of the magnitude and power of a bullfighting bull, its fierceness, until you are at ground level. Many bullfighters are killed.
A few years ago a radio host in Northern California played a video of a bullfighter getting gored to death, congratlating himself of the outcome loudly, and I became so disgusted that I never listened to him again.
Exactly, but bullfighting has evolved through the years and varies between countries. It is possible that some form of banderillero might ride horse, but highly doubtful due to the mechanics of the procedure (banderilleros approach the bull running, which I can't see done on horseback for multiple reasons).You are correct, and that is what I thought from seeing bullfights in the movies.
