Ban the use of horses in bullfighting, and ban bullfighting entirely.

Bullfighting is an inhumane practice that involves tormenting a bull, often by slashing its shoulder muscles and stabbing it with spears while it fights. A bullfighter's horse is blindfolded, vocal cords cut, and ears stuffed to limit the horse's senses and prevent it from screaming in the fight, and many times the innocent horse is gored during the fight, necessitating its killing, as well. This inhumane treatment of bulls and horses for "entertainment" is unconscionable and must end. "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” ~Gandhi
