Festival Of The Bulls, Medellin, Colombia.jpg

At La Macarena Stadium, a picadore on horsesback lances the bulls neck hoping to pierce the muscle on the animals back and weaken its neck, preventing it from fully lifting its head. The Festival of the Bulls is a month long celebration of bullfighting.  Colombia is one of the few Latin American countries where the original form of bullfighting is still practiced.
