"Not all rodeos are bad!"
"The people love their horses, and they are well taken care of off the arena!"
"The horses love what they do!"
"All sports have the occasional accident!"
I am not saying all rodeos are bad, I am talking about CHEYENNE RODEO.
For most rodeos, I am sure they are well taken care of and maybe in Cheyenne too, but that doesn't matter if they are being horribly abused IN the arena.
Even if the horses love what they do, which I doubt they do, they are often (not always) so ruined that they have to be sent to slaughter, except for the rare occasion where the rodeo keeps the horses through their retirement (which many rodeos lie about doing, including this one).
Also, yes, all sports have the occasional accident, but this isn't just about the accidents, it is about what the horse is going through. Plus, if the horses are constantly ramming into rails from being so terrified, you know there is a problem.
Now, I repeat, I am not talking about all rodeos. Just Cheyenne. Here are some videos on the matter.
