_________________________________________________________________________________________


this is called "course Camarguaise" it is not a bullfight, no banderillas, blood or killing here!

the Camargue bulls are smaller, lighter and of course much faster than the Spanish ones!
fine cords are fixed on the basis of the bull's (or cow's) horns, and also a cockade is fixed between the horns ...
the premise of the game is to remove them using a "raset" (sort of a sharp comb) , hence the name of raseteur.
these games are especially dangerous for the raseteurs.
Camargue bulls race have a name, and respond to it. when they enter the arena, they have a minute time to take possession of the place, they are the masters, and must expel all intruders.
here is a pic of a perfect raset www.michelgassier.com/blog/wp-…
race reports in news paper says more about the bulls than the humans, the bull is the "V.I.P" in those games.. or let's say... "V.I.B" :) and they have often statues in their honor 13-septembre.deviantart.com/ar…

Holy crap! That's a quick escape. It's like a French version of a rodeo. Sort-of.

well, it is a traditional bull race, don't have to ride the bull, but to dribble it! and of course, cut the cockade and the stripes :)
