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 :)
