Abrivado in Camargue .


 There are several groups of Guardians on horse back. They meet on the beach in the morning and form several groups of riders. Each group of riders pushes a small group of 3-4 bulls into a V shape formation called the Abrivado. They ride down the beach towards the village keeping tight control over their bulls. A Guardian is the keeper of a herd of semi-free bulls and horses that are bred in the Camargue.
