Question Gineteada

Has anyone ever heard of this? I just heard that they snip the back tendons on the horses legs. Is that true? If it is it's freaking HORRIBLE!

I don't know but that looks terrible they usually don't leap in the air over and over again

And they don't have that strap around them that hurts them so they buck, but they're bucking anyway. And a lot of them are just falling over.

What the f**k is wrong with people?

I know right!? I looked at the comments and some people were defending it, saying it was a real sport and cutting the horses tendons was not the worst thing that could happen to them!

That is so messed up. D:

Poor horses.

I don't believe they snip the tendons. They ride bulls like that as well.

It is cruel, however, because their spurs are embedded in the animals hide, that's what is causing the bucking, and keeping the 'riders' on. You'll notice that their legs never move, because the spurs are dug so deep in. The spurs look to be about four inches long.

Why would they snip tendons to cause bucking?

It said that they snip the tendons so that they can only rear and cow hop. I think it's so that the riders have a better chance to stay on when they are bareback. I think it's just disgusting.

You'd think if they snipped the tendons the horses wouldn't even be able to walk.

It looks more like they stab the horse with their spurs (notice how the horses kick at their bellies) then whip them around to cause even more pain and confusion. It seems the 'game' is to see who can either:
A) keep there horses bucking the longest
B) keep on the horse the longest

I don't think the wobbly legs are from cut tendons, but from sheer exhaustion. Imagine having spurs jabbed into your ribs, then being forced to jump around while being beaten around the head for who knows how long.
