Spain Bullfighting

We are probably all familiar with the ancient blood ‘sport’ of Bullfighting throughout Spain and Portugal. But are you aware that France is still hosting these barbaric spectacles in 11 different departments across Southern France?

Whilst the often tragic end to the bull is apparent, what is also extremely concerning to us who have a love of horses, is the countless injuries and deaths that are sustained to these brave horses during these events. In France these are called ‘La corrida à cheval’. Why is this entertainment still in existence in France and why is the French government funding it? Did you know that there are schools here that train young bullfighters from the age of 9 yrs old, again subsidised by the French authorities using taxpayers money.

As the result of many of these bullfights are so graphic we have refrained from posting the more disturbing images here, but have included some links to French anti bullfighting websites below:
