This video is no longer available.

Eveling Perez, 33, became fascinated by bull riding when she was a teenager. But her brother told her the rodeo sport was only for men in Nicaragua, where machismo was and still is the norm.  She ignored him and started to practice. Now she regularly rides a bucking bull in rodeo shows.
