I rodeo.

I dont treat my horse like hes made of glass. He drags steers atleast once a week....check fences etc. I believe that some concussion on hard ground helps build up bone density...just not TURNING.

I dont always practice on perfect ground BECAUSE I rodeo and the ground will never be perfect and my horse has to learn how to handle himself.

Id like to think the grass has a lot more give to it than asphalt, lol.. especially with all the dirt under it.. depending on where you live i guess.. our grass isnt like asphalt though.



Grass will make you slip more, if the ground is wet.. maybe you just have really slippery grass?


Practicing the barrel pattern on grass isnt gonna load your horses front end.. riding the pattern in a tie-down will though.. but ill save that for another day.


Where you gonna gather cattle? In the grass.. or you keep em stalled? just pullin your leg. Lol.

Thats cool. :)

Lol, sorry but it cracks me up to know the rodeo people are draggin around a bull calf for no reason.. they should at least make ya castrate, or worm them, lol.
Whats a turn any different from a rollback, or slide stop?

Exactly my point.. grass practice can help with that too! ;)

When I gather cows I'm not running my horse an turning...do you??? LOL

Sweetie I'm referencing YOU running on asphalt vs a track...you'll get sore quicker on asphalt.

Yes our ground is hard.


A bull calf??? No just steers that managed to squeeze out of the chutes during roping practice LOL

I'm not sure how fast and hard your horses run but mine will NEVER be run on grass LOL. The only thing that will accomplish for my guy is making him more ratey then h already is so he can turn without wiping out. Common sense.

I dont know what you mean when you say 'gather cows' but yes, i do run a lil-- some are escape artists, and im not gonna sit in the pasture with treats, and say nice things to him, and hope he comes back.. imma go get em, lol. There is quite a bit of loping, and trotting as well. Are you rotating their pasture or chasing them into pens.. or do you know why youre chasing around cows? Lol.

Haha! I run on tar & chip asphalt.. girl, i got callusing 2 inches thick on the bottom of my feet! Never had a splint to be honest.. when i was a kid we would have foot races in road.

Thats right-- the rodeo people want a gentle lil steer to rope.. dont throwing him around all night make for tough steaks?

what if he runs in the pasture for turn-out time? you can controll it, but that involves making him miserable.. i hope he doesnt turn in the grass and wipeout.. better practice grass barrels with him. ;)

Oh dear lord you crack me up LMFAO.

If you can't see how toting over a hundred extra pounds...running and maneuvering around sharp turns is different than a horse playing in a pasture then there's nothing I can tell you. You can't TEACH someone common sense.

Yep I'm sure you have bigger and badder cows...didnt realize we were starting another pissing contest on cow size???

Oh and one who runs more? Little man syndrome.......


Since this topic is completely derailed and completely pointless I'm out.

Why dont i have no common sense?
