Bullfighting on horseback or mounted bullfighting.
Rejoneo is a traditional style of bullfighting that originated in Spain. It is also known as “mounted bullfighting” or “bullfighting on horseback.” In rejoneo, the matador, called a rejoneador, faces the bull while riding a horse. The rejoneador uses a specialized saddle and a set of long and short spears called rejones to perform various maneuvers and engage with the bull.
The rejoneador’s objective in rejoneo is to demonstrate their skill, agility, and bravery while avoiding the bull’s charges and horns. They perform a series of movements, such as lateral jumps, pirouettes, and other evasive maneuvers, to avoid being gored by the bull.
