I have been on a barrel horse before the day after a run and had to becareful not to hit the horses sides because the horse was so sore from being kicked the whole run. Im just saying a good well trained horse should been be kicked every split second to push it.

If you post a link to your blog, and it is a very pro-PETA blog, then you have to expect some concern that you are a pro-PETA person. They go together.

PETA is a lunatic fringe animal rights group. They want Border Collies to stop herding sheep, because it is mean to the sheep and has a master-slave relation between man & dog. They oppose virtually every form of domesticated animal, without being able to see that their policies would result in the vast majority of domesticated animals dying.
"But now Peta - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - is itself on the receiving end of angry words over its own treatment of animals after it emerged that the organisation put down 96 per cent of the animals handed into its American headquarters. Of 2,216 animals taken to its premises in Norfolk, Virginia, last year, 2,124 were put to sleep - almost six per day. Homes were found for just seven."
Peta under fire over claim that it kills most animals left at its US headquarters - Telegraph
"New records show PETA killed a staggering 89.4 percent of the adoptable pets in its care during 2012. Despite years of public outrage over its euthanasia program, the notorious animal rights group has continued killing adoptable dogs and cats at an average of over 30 pets per week. According to records from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, PETA killed 1,647 cats and dogs last year while placing just 19 in adoptive homes. Since 1998, a total of 29,398 pets have died at the hands of PETA workers."
Peta Kills Animals

PETA has killed far more animals than all the rodeos in America combined!

I have no sympathy for them. If you use your blog to promote them..."If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas."

Clearly, there are some things that need to be cleared up here. First of all, those pictures with the black blocks of white text? I DID NOT POST THOSE. They were REBLOGGED (a tumblr term, I guess) from ANOTHER blog, and I commented on them. I did NOT bash barrel racing, etc.

Second, the blog is not PETA-themed, it is HORSE THEMED. There are about three recent posts that concern PETA, and not posted by me, and by that I am not saying "hey, don't blame me!" because there is nothing to blame, nothing illegal or that wrong was done. I am saying that is not my opinion and I have not lied to you. Other than those posts, it has nothing to do with PETA. Sure there are some animal rights posts concerning spurs and what-not, but that is because one of the things REblogged had spurs and people started sending in messages on their opinions. It is just a horse blog. And at that, just some random blog I made to post pictures of pretty horses and I added some people because I got too lazy to own it anymore. It's really not that big of a deal how "responsible" I am for someone on there who happens to support PETA, because honestly by giving them attention you are only helping them.

And lastly, to me, getting yelled at for some post that was not by me that ended up on a different website completely unrelated to this thread seems ridiculous to me. If someone posted something pro-PETA on my blog I am not about to flip over backwards. It's just some post, not a life changing decision that completely changes the blog. There's no reason to freak out about it. PETA supporters exist and they turn up sometimes, so what? Just ignore them and move on, and they won't get the attention that fuels their organization. No crime has been committed here, it is not the topic of this thread, and really, it's not a big deal or any reason for everyone to get mad at me. I'm just some person who wanted to know more about rodeos because I have heard both opinions.

Horses feed off emotion of others. If one is alert in a group, the others become alert. One is nervous, they all get nervous. One runs, they all run. A nervous rider creates a nervous horse. If the rider is excited, the horse gets excited.

So to create energy, a rider that kicks creates energy which in turn gets the horse to move better or faster.

I have no experience in running barrels but I don't think that a good rider actually kicks the horse that hard. More of a bumping. I'm sure there are some that do kick the horse hard but normally it wouldn't cause the horse to be sore from it.

When you post or blog about controversial topics, and especially pertaining horses, you are going to receive feedback, good or bad.
Unfortunately if PETA supporters or the likes of post on your tumblr page?(I am not familiar with tumblr) people are going to associate you with the sorts. No different than hanging out with the wrong crowd and you getting lumped into the same category. Only the internet is worse, in my opinion.
Again, this is why I encourage a little bit of research before you open the proverbial can of worms.

Well that is why I asked about the rodeo. I did try to look on the internet before hand, but everything I read about it was bad unless it was on the Cheyenne Rodeo webpage. Anyways, I get that, I was only trying to clear it up.

Here is my opinion,
You can't argue with those videos!! Does that look "swayed" to you? No, I don't think so. You don't lead em and feed em, but you ride em and SLIDE em? Sounds to me you're one of them. Cause sliding em would break em and kill em.

This thread should have been left in the graveyard.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Welcome to the forum CountryGirl.
Unfortunately I think you misunderstood my signature line. Riding and sliding refers to this.
