oh for gosh sakes, its a national sport in other countries and i found that horse's fake to the right and off to the left pretty cool. I think if you were out there with that animal you would not find him impeded at all...
Just because it is a national sport, it makes such a level of animal abuse okay? *holy cr@p*
Your ignorance is amazing. Why don't you educate yourself about the strategic placements of the impediments to the bulls movements before espousing any more asinine remarks. They put them there for a reason.

This is one of the coolest equine YouTube videos I have ever seen--a high level dressage rider and equally skilled reiner in a combined exhibition. I won't spoil it, but be sure to watch the whole thing. I LOVE it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrYOQ52U3LQ
Only a very sick person could enjoy watching that video. So, you are obviously into animal cruelty! Disgusting. Screw what the horse can do. Basically a cutting/reining/dressage horse that can keep out of the way of a seriously impaled & impeded bovine. Did I say disgusting?!
What if YOU were impaled & impeded & someone rode their horse around you???
Whoa Whoa wait a minute.. I am not into animal cruelty. I find the movements of the horse amazing as well as the ability of the rider. And while I don't condone bullfighting you have to admit that is one amazing horse with his agility and grace. I was only talking about the horse not the sport itself. I'm sorry if you found offense to the video but I still find the horse's movements amazing even if you took the bull out of the equasion.
Again sorry to offend.

I can't help it. I have to post one of my own videos. I have been told it's pretty good. If you are really bored I have lots more horse videos on youtube...but I think this one is the most entertaining.
No that is not me getting on Charlie at 26 seconds. It was a very green friend of mine. He was told to get on a little nicer next time. That clip made it into the video because Charlie steps on his foot....and knowing Charlie it was probably on purpose!
I watched a really touching video last night not on youtube but, on the nickernetwork.
It was Scimitar: The Story of Bunny. About a yearling that had a tree branch stuck 6 inches into his skull just missing the brain. The story is about the people that saved her and her trials of rehabilitain. The horse couldn't stand by himself for almost a year.
Scroll all the way down to the bottom and click watch online.
Plus that site has tons of other great videos the Hoof Beats programs are a hoot!
This has to be one of the most touching stories I have ever seen. What an amazing young horse to be that patient and tolerant through the recovery and rehab process and AMAZING people who were devoted to his recovery for a YEAR! What a LUCKY LUCKY horse. I am just amazed!

http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=HgG_Gwy7Ysg Merlin is SPECTACULAR... I think the sport itself is cruel, barbaric and outdated but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the magnificent movement and skill of the horse... Just breathtaking.
Agreed! I would also give my first born to be able to ride like that. The rider and horse look to be one entity. Didn't see a single dressage ride at the Olympics that remotely approached this level of partnership and talent.
Shame they have to display their skill while torturing the bull though.
I've got to do some digging around YouTube to see if I can find a race I saw on the year-end TVG show. As the horses ran their race, I expected to see debris, or an animal on the track, or a strange spook or misstep with the jock hanging on...nope, as they turned for home, they were cheered on by a very enthusiastic group of about 5-8 naked guys. I about choked I laughed so hard!
