Bullfighting is considered a highly ritualized cultural event and art form which some see as deeply tied to Spanish culture and identity. The bullfight is regarded as a demonstration of style, technique and courage by its participants. Freestyle bullfighting is a style of bullfighting developed in American rodeo. The style was developed by the rodeo clowns who protect bull riders from being trampled or gored by an angry bull.
