The Torero
Sports Feature, first prize singles


A bull attacks a matador Cesar Rincon's horse during a corrida at La Macarena bullring. Picadors mounted on horses play a role early on in a bullfight, stabbing the bull with lances to weaken it through loss of blood before its final confrontation with the 'torero'. The bull weighed around 500kg. The horse received a blow to one of its legs, but was not gored and was taken from the ring.
