An elegant horseman on a Lusitano horse stabs 3 or 4 bandeirilhas in the bull. Then 8 men lineup facing the bull, the front man provokes the bull to charge and then performs a face catch and holds the bulls head before the others restrain and subdue it.

Leading oxen and 2 campinos herd the bull back to its pen.
