Yesterday the sun finally came back! And what we went to see, was the course camarguaise at Place Picasso next to the Jardins de la Fontaine. Here they were small cows, not bulls, and the raseteurs were still apprentices, coming from the raseteur school of Sommieres. So what’s the trick? In the cow’s/bulls horns are tied rosettes and strings, which the raseteur wearing white shirts are trying to take off. And that’s not easy! The raseteurs have to be aware of the sharp horns (here covered, though) and the power of its competitor. You can see amazing leaps when they jump to the fences when fleeing from the cow/bull!
This is a very old tradition in the area, and both young and adult love it. If you have a chance, go and see it!
