Bronc Riding

What do you guys think about the cruelty of bronc riding? I think it's terrible. The riders spur them, the buck straps rub the skin off there flanks. It's rediculus. Those horses can be ridden it's just that stupid buck strap.

Heres a good video on it:

(it's about all rodeo but I don't think roping is that bad, just bronc riding)

And this one on shocking:

I hate that they do it. And I also hate that I enjoy watching it. I think it's a cruel way to enforce a horse to do something for sheer enjoyment. But also I could understand because it's a very interesting sport.

I hate to say it, but I agree with Harlee. I hate the fact that the horses are so poorly treated, but it is interesting. Bronc riders are amazing atheletes, but I would never try it for the horse's sake.

I know you may think I don't know what cruel is on the american circut I do know what cruel is but not in america.

See in australia we don't go as far as the americans do no offence but our australias they feed them, care for them and they love them alot but there was one serious case in wallan somewhere in australia that gets me really really really mad but im not saying that the americans are cruel on the circut.

But I don't know so I really can't say anything about them but in australia we care so much for them and even the bulls and I had a mate who went to a rodeo and she was patting some of the bulls and they were so calm and they didnt do a thing.

Yer I agree with you guys to but also you have to think what would happen to the broncs if they were'nt doing that most likely dogfood by now.

The second one is HORRIBLE!!!!!
How could they shock horses like that!! It's cruel!

I know not all rodeo's are like this but the ones that are should be shut down or at the very least stop the use of such cruelty!

I won't even watch the video. I don't appreciate competitive sports of any kind. Pacifist by nature, sorry.

Please don't lump all Americans into this. There is cruelty anywhere there are humans.

I don't think she is involving all Americans. But Australian Rodeo's are very different, I have never seen a bronc with its ribs showing, some are in show condition!! And al the bulls, etc are fat as well. They take such good care of them, and as crip stated if they wernt doing this they would be in a can of dog food by now.

By the horses doing a rodeo, it is giving them a second chance. If they cnt be trained, and they buck, well in my opinion they should do rodeos. In some extent it is cruel... but the way those horses get treated are even better then some ridden horses.

So in my opinion, as long as they are looked after.. I don't have a problem with it.

For example: I know this dressage horse, he was excellent, although you didnt know when he would lay a couple of good ones in... and I mean he was vertical. Loverly horse on the ground, althou he was so unpredictable. Now that horse had a loving heart, and he defintally DID NOT belong in a can of dog food! He done rodeo's instead, and he use to love it... no kiding after I saw him the 5th time, after the rider would fall off, he would canta over to the gate to be let go, and line up for the next.

So yeh that's MY opinion :)

I've been to 1 rodeo in my life. That was more than enough for me. I just don't see the logic in it.
