A horseback matador is a rejoneador. He fights bulls from expensive and specially trained horses. That is different than a picador. The picador is the torero whose job is to weaken the tossing muscle of the bull. He does not kill the bull and, therefore, is not a matador.

Torero is the name given to anyone who fights a bull. A matador is a torero who performs the faenawith his muleta and then kills the bull. All matadores are toreros but not all toreros are matadores.

Torero is the name given to all those involved in the bullfight and includes:Picadores - the men on horseback that use lances to weaken the bull's tossing muscles in the neck.

Banderilleros - the torero who assists the matador in the ring and places the decorated, barbed sticks called banderillas.

Matador - the main participant who must artistically work the bull and kill it.

What is a Mounted bull fighter called?

When the principle Bull Fighter fights from horseback he is called a "Rejoneador", and the event is called a Rejorneo.A picador is a mounted man with a lance whose job is to weaken a bull's neck muscles, and tire him somewhat before the main combat in an event called a Corrida de Toros. In this type of bullfight the bullfighter, or Torero, is on foot.Both events are considered an art form of spectacle, not a sporting event. Until the fight is over the "Art" is the bullfighter's ability to control the bull and get as close as possible. Some bull's weigh 1,100 pounds or more and all bulls are perfectly capable of disemboweling a bullfighter until they are dead.

First, "corrida de toros" in a circular bullring called "plaza" where a "torero" (a man) with a cape`fights´against a bull, it stops when the bull is killed by the man (rarely the bull is forgiven). Second, "encierros", it is a race where a lot of people run together with a group of bulls until they arrive to the bullring.

Why do bulls in bullfights get killed?

Killing the bull has been outlawed in some countries for its cruelty, but ironically, the most hurtful parts of the fight(The placing of the bandarillas and the stab with the lance, are still part of the fight. In most countries, the bull is killed by the matador. The reason why the bull is killed in the arena is because the entire match plays out much like a classical tragedy. There are two adversaries. One of them, the man, has the skills and knows what's going on, while the bull has the strength, and although it doesn't know what's going on, is a very fast learner. That's part of the reason why a bullfight may never take more than 25 minutes. If it does, the bull is taken out and killed like ordinary cattle. Anyway, the bull can kill the man, and the man can kill the bull. The man is required to go through the three stages of the fight before he can kill the bull, while the bull can kill him at anytime. If the bull wasn't killed by the matador in the end, it would be like if Romeo and Juliet ended BEFORE the suicide; there would be no resolution to the conflict.
