one of the most exciting unknown activities in Oman, is the bull fight. The bull fight arena located in Barka is one of the most famous arenas for this traditional sports that people are still doing. the arena is rounded shape with seats and in the middle there is the dusty arena which is having number of polls that the owners tie their bull to it. categorise are set, sizes meet the same size, unless the owners challenged each other, a referee is always there to watch and some other people to assist to control the bulls. the competition starts with two bulls pulled to the centre of the ring and the fight starts, it lasts for couple of minutes not more than 5 minutes and then a winner or a draw is declared. the animals are really taken car of and the owners are proud of their bulls. highly recommended to watch as it happens ever other weekend (friday) only.
