    So is everyone else but your thoughts are "rodeo! It kills!!!!" that's not a thought that's an opinion based on false proof. If your thought was "I don't like rodeos because I feel they are to rough on the animals" Then that's different.

    Marlea, maybe instead of taking everything as criticism maybe take it as offered knowledge. There are so many peoe on the forum that are very knowledgeable. Maybe take this as a learning curve to learn more about a disiplen you don't know alot about.

    Just a thought.

    Mm-hm, and how would you feel if someone just walked up to you at a show and said "You're cruel for using a saddle on your horse, don't you know they damage a horse's back?" then proceeded to jam their opinion of saddles and all things riding down your throat?

    Or, since you ride bareback most of the rest of the time, how would you feel if someone started having a conniption fit about how riding bareback is cruel because it is bad for their spine because all of your weight is concentrated on a very small surface area with no gullet to clear the spine like you get in a saddle? It causes sway backs and mis-alignment of their back. Blah Blah Blah.

    You would not be very willing to listen to that person with an open mind, would you? That's what happens when the first words out of your mouth on a subject are closed minded, naive, and berating. All that accomplishes is making people roll their eyes, shake their head, and walk away.

    If you really desire to educate people on something that you feel strongly about, then you need to learn how to do your research properly so that you will have valid arguing points. Walking around screaming "I've been to a couple rodeos and they are cruel. IT'S HORRIBLE!!" at everyone isn't the way to help people see your point.

    Have you been behind the scenes? Seen how the animals are treated? Seen how the animals look and how they react in the pens behind the chutes? Have you helped to handle the animals so you can get a feel of their attitudes and personality? Until you have done all those things, the only points you have are what you've been shown in youtube videos and fanatic PETA rantings. When compared to the experience of people who have been involved in rodeo and know the inner workings, those points hold water about as well as a screen door on a submarine.

    There is very little doubt in my mind that until you can show definitive proof that all rodeos, everywhere, are horribly cruel places where animals are killed just for sport, then I (along with many other experienced folks here) will go with my own experiences. I've seen more horses get hurt running around their own turnout than I have seen get injured in a rodeo. On the rare occasion when one does get hurt, the vet is out there just as quickly as the EMT's respond when a cowboy is hurt. When they aren't working, those critters are treated like royalty. That is my personal experience and that is what I'll stick to.

    1. Saddles are now made so its increadibly comfortable for the horse, and I always use woolen saddle blankets and also when I ride bareback I use a saddle pad witch is pure softness!!
    2. My friends have been to rodeos, and behind the scenes as their dad runs it, and yes it is still cruel

    Then maybe you should be talking to your friends dad rather than sensationalizing on the internet about things you have clearly not researched to its full extent. Entitled to your opinion , not entitled to add fuel to a false fire.

    Well written and articulate posts that represent your stance on the issue get better responses.

    You have no facts, no valid argument, and no experience.

    You're a child who ran in "ZOMG!!11!!!! I wuz on PeTA22222222222222 an I saw a vid dat wuz soooooooooooooo croooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllll. It killlzzzz, meeeet cauzezzzz cancerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr and brayne tooomorrrsssssssss OMFG!!11!!! NOOOEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!11!!!!!!! Ba'wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

    So you're going to get treated like an uneducated child who is falling into the pressures of a media driven, puppy killing, pit bull banning, money hungry, pro-beastiality WHACK JOB named Ingrid Newirk. And while you're busy donating your allowance and ordering your PeTA2 starter packs, she's petting her PET, non liberated, live stock that she keeps (oh noes!) in PENS on her FARM.

    Think about that. Do your research. And for GOD SAKES stop typing like it's a text war.
