You're the one who's getting their panties in a knot.
Don't like my opinion? Don't reply.
You're the one who's bashing the sport with generalized comment (or opinion, as you so claim). I felt compelled to defend barrel racing because it is not true that barrel racers kick and whip all the time. Yes, we've got our bad eggs in the sport (like any other horse sport), but Courtney Duncan is certainly not one of them. It'd be the same thing if I said I can't stand to watch western pleasure videos because of all the peanut rollers and numbed tails. Or that I can't stand to see Arabian halter horses because their noses are so dished that they can't even breathe properly for performance events. Yes, it would be my opinion. Not to mention, not true in the majority of cases.
Yes, you can watch whatever you want, but you said that barrel racing drives you nuts so I wouldn't understand why you would watch something that drives you nuts. Hence why I said not to watch it if it bothers you so.
