Los Toros fight (usually a live band)

  • The bull is then introduced to the plaza, usually by name, weight, age, and the name of the ranch where it was raised.

  • Special ranches raise the bulls, giving them a “life of luxury” to justify it’s cruel death. (lots of room to roam, good diet, etc)

Slide12 l.jpg

  • The fight (usually a live band)torero plays with the bull, in order to learn it’s moves and become familiar with it. The torero makes a series of passes and specialized moves with bull.

  • The toreros are considered athletes and artist and practice for years before becoming professionals

Slide14 l.jpg

  • Next, the fight (usually a live band)picadores (lancers) come out on horseback, and use spears/lances to stab and cut the bull’s neck muscles

  • The horses wear protective gear to keep them from being disemboweled (which used to happen when they didn’t wear the protective gear)

Slide18 l.jpg

  • Next, the fight (usually a live band)banderilleros (flagmen) each take turns attempting to place sharp, barbed sticks into the bull’s neck in order to weaken it even more

  • They hold the decorated sticks in the air, run at the bull, and force them into the bull’s neck, and if successful, they stay

Slide23 l.jpg

  • Finally, the torero re-enters the plaza with a small red fight (usually a live band)cape (muleta) and a special sword (espada).

  • The torero plays with the bull, trying to make it tired and confused

  • The torero tries to show his bravery and skill by performing special moves, and tries to get as close as possible to the bull without moving

Slide25 l.jpg

  • The torero then ends with one final fight (usually a live band)estocada, where he thrusts the sword into the back of the neck, between the shoulder blades

  • The goal is to hit the heart and cause the bull to die immediately
