Horses for Bull Fighting
In 2018 we were shocked to discover that a small number of large horses are sent over to Italy from France for use in Bullfighting and we have since saved four horses destined for such a fate. They are used as the horses on the outside of the ring (Picador horses) and are all taller/larger horses to withstand the bull trying to attack them better. This is a high risk and high stress ordeal for the horse and there is the possibility that they can get gored by the bull.
Every year more than 50,000 bulls are killed in bullfights in Europe alone. Countless horses die or suffer severe injuries
