Cheyenne Rodeo?

Okay, before I get all those comments saying:

"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.




Opinions?

Here is my opinion,
Stop watching SHARK and PETA videos.

Gotta love SHARK. Not much different than PITA oops I mean PETA. My bad.

Maybe things are more extreme at Cheyenne but accidents do happen. If we want to try and prevent all accidents, maybe we shouldn't be jumping horses, riding, stalling, etc. Heck, we probably shouldn't even own them.

Why doesn't SHARK go after racehorses? I mean many a broke at 1 1/2. I've seen some that got shot on the track because they broke or shattered their leg. Hmmm...

Normally, I would agree, but I looked them up and there are complaints and news articles on their accidents all over the internet :/

If normally you would agree then why not now? What makes them any more "right" about this subject than any other?

Also you have to pay attention to who publishes articles, produces videos or fund studies. Media is ALWAYS swayed.

Do you mean shocking? And honestly, no, but there is no way it doesn't hurt the horse :/ and they hid it from the audience and were eventually sued.

Also, I would like to say ahead of time that I am in no way trying to impose this onto others, I am legitimately curious as to what everyone thinks of this, since there seem to be lots of different opinions. I have never been to a rodeo and honestly WOULD NOT KNOW, but this seems pretty over the top.

When the livestock gets more broken bones than the riders, I'll worry...

Seriously, rodeo horses have a very easy life. Much easier than many ranch horses. But then, many ranchers have a much rougher life than most PITAs. PETAs. Whatever.

A rancher friend of mine just brought me a Border Collie puppy from his place. In the last month, one son sprained his shoulder when thrown in the mountains, and one broke his ankle from the same cause. One of their employees, OTOH, credits the horse with saving his life when he got lost in a snowstorm. When he gave up and let go of the reins, the horse took him back to the camp in the night & thru the storm.

It is a rough life. Honestly, rougher than I would want. My friend loves it, as do his sons. I'm glad I know men like that. They are glad I flew in combat. I doubt PETA would ever understand either of us...
