picadors are incredible horsemen.

That's not a picador. That's a Rejoneador (maybe Spanish), a matador that rides a horse. In Portugal they're called Cavaleiros and wear different clothes (sec. XVI replicas). The Horse Bullfighting is best developed in Potugal, where most of best Worldwide Cavaleiros are from.
Picadores are the horseriders that perform before "on foot" Matadores start their job, but in Portugal the Matadores perform without picadores.
But that's not a sport...
