Bullfight

The men on the horses are known as Cavaleiros. They stick sharp spears into the bulls.

The three men standing next to the horses are the Capinhas. They use the cape to draw the bulls attention.

The two teams of men in the back, known as Forcados, perform the most daring part of the show: take the bull by the horns (actually, they grab the neck).
