Are you vegan as well? are you saddles and bridles synthetic? are you riding boots, helmet, chaps, etc. etc. ALL fake? If you say rodeos are cruel I expect you live a complete animal activist lifestyle, which I'm sorry to say SHOULD include riding horses. After all, we do use them for entertainment, i'm sure being ridden isn't always fun, there are people who are cruel to their horses.

Your young, so I suppose that's your excuse, but as you get older, you can't scream cruelty at every sport you don't like, and defend the ones you like as if they are the exception.

Also, I have yet to see a reason WHY you dislike rodeos. All you've said is that they ARE cruel because your friend has SEEN them. Have you seen EVERY rodeo in the world? did you personally see an animal be killed in the rodeo? From my experience, the people involved in the rodeo itself are very friendly; if you show any sort of interest in the sport i'm sure they would be glad to show you behind the scenes of what they do. Unless you go to the 'backyard' rodeos, you aren't going to find many places who will say ' no you CAN'T see what we do.' because really, that would cause more suspicion for them, and it isn't logical for them to bring that on themselves.

Even the small rodeos would be accepting to her. IF she is capable of going in and not screaming and picketing. But politely showed curiosity in the sport.

But we have to remember, the majority of propaganda videos INCLUDE the very same activists who are "helping" participating in the torture to "keep it going" for the sake of the video. Just like the whole cow abuse situation on YouTube. One of the calf kickers ADMITTED to being the one who did the under cover video.

Hm. That's a bit rash to be saying, don't you think?

I strongly believe all rodeo's are made purely for the good off man and the bad for the horse/cow!

I don't think you're remembering here that the only reason man DOES do well is BECAUSE of the horses and cattle. What would we possibly gain by treating the rodeo stock inhumanely? Do a little research, and you'll find that these animals are very well cared for. The horses and bulls are what make the rodeo contractors their money-I'm sure the last thing they want to be doing is trying to kill and abuse their livelihood.

Straps tied around the horse or cow make it extremely unconfotable for them, making them buck.

It's important to remember that these animals are bred for what they do-just like dressage horses, or cutting horses, or whatever else. As young stock, they are singled out and chosen for their ability to buck. These animals LIKE doing what they do-as others have said, who wouldn't want to live in a pasture eating and pooping for 10 months of the year then work for 8 seconds a few times a week to throw a scrawny cowboy off their backs? Read what others have written about the use of the straps.

Every year many many many animals are hurt badly or even killed just for the enjoyment of us.

Can you show me where you got this information? Would you cite your resources? Until I see proof, I highly doubt the truth behind this remark. I went to the Calgary Stampede (biggest outdoor show on earth, or whatever they say) 2 years in a row and not once did I see a bronc or bull get hurt. I have, however, heard of many cowboys being hurt badly. If you're going to feel sorry for anyone, feel sorry for the cowboys.

There is absolutley no enjoyment in that!!!
People, cows, and horses are suverley injured in this dangerous, un humane event.
Before you begin posting about these things, you've got to do a bit of research to back up your story. It makes you look bad when you don't know what you're talking about.

If your going to make such vast HIGHLY OPINIONATED accusations, then you should provide facts, data, studies, proof, and no not proof and facts from biased sources to back it up so your not just spouting your opinion.

Opinions can be ANYTHING, most are radicalized about this sort of thing. If you want people to listen we need facts. If it's so dangerous, I'm sure there are statistics out there stating deaths/injuries/etc...

It appears the assertion that rodeos kill has been sufficiently rebutted. I have removed a number of off topic posts from this thread that followed, and am closing it to prevent more of the same since it does not appear that a substantive reply from the OP is forthcoming.

Anyone interested in starting a substantive discussion about the dangers rodeos may pose is welcome to do so here in the Horse Protection forum, and of course anyone interested in other rodeo related discussion is welcome to start a thread in our Rodeo forum.
