I got told once, that rodeos are Saten's games. Yeaaahhh, ok. Anyway,

I havent seen any proper rodeos, here in SA we only do barrels and that kinda stuff. But I agree with you all, the accidents that occur are just accidents. Maybe the horse slipped and hurt its leg, maybe the calf jerked abit too hard, and hurt its neck?

Those animal activists go on and on about rodeos being cruel. What about showjumping? Horses sometimes get hurt there. Even in dressage, and eventing and whatnot. In polo, bad accidents happen. I went to a polo match once, 2 horses slammed into each other headfirst, the impact snapped their necks and killed them both instantly. It was an accident, not intentional cruelty!! Sorry, went abit off track... But like I said, accidents happen...

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

But I still don't like calf roping, broncs or anything like that... I don't mind it if done properly. And I agree that accidents, unfortunatly do happen, what that video showed was horrible cruelty.
Ironically, the worst abuse I always see at EVERY rodeo I go to is - the barrel racers. It's like nobody expects a woman to abuse a horse, and those poor animals are just mistreated in the worst ways. From the sharp vicious bits they wear, from the booting with massive spurs, to the slashing them across the asses with reins and screaming like an idiot to get them to go faster (did every single one of these idiots fail physics?) it just makes my stomach churn watching it already.

I'd rather watch a bronc any day of the week - THEY get to do the hurting!

From the same rodeo as posted above:



I actually feel sorrier for THAT horse then I do the bronc! Friggin IDIOT of an owner, I would have clapped if that horse would have thrown her moronic screaming ass into the fence!

I remember one girl was screaming soo loudly that everyone heard what she was saying over the music! she kept saying get on! get on! lol But we don't have a whole lot of serious barrel racers, we do but not everyone does that, like to just have fun doing it!

Unfortunately, there is a lot of Barrel Racers out there that do that and give us a bad name :/ I plan on opening up a barrel racing facility when I get older, but only bumper spurs will be allowed. A lot of barrel racers do get carried away with their spurs. I also don't scream at my horse...it's not like he understands what I'm saying lol! And the reins thing, I don't know about that. I do plan on getting an over and under whip, but a fake one, just for show. I will be training my horses to go on cue, not torturing them to go as fast as they can. Oh yeah, and I use the most mild bit on my horse because he runs off of leg cues and neck reining, for some reason people think pulling on their horses mouth makes them turn faster O.o.

We went to the Royal Winter Fair we host here, which is probably the biggest barrel racing event we have in the province - also one of the biggest show jumping events. I was absolutely DELIGHTED to see the winner this year being the quietest rider with the calmest and most well trained horse. It was a fantastic spectacle and I sincerely hope some people learned from it - I'm pretty sure the only reason someone hasn't figured it out yet is because screaming, kicking and whipping has always worked in the past, so why change a good thing right? They're all going to be screwed when that smart group finally shows them how much better a quiet and relaxed horse with a quiet rider is going to run!

There's a Paint stud I love running in our area right now, and he's winning pretty much everything as far as local competition - his rider and owner (same woman) are my heros for the absolute phenomenal control and precision they have in each and every one of their cool as a cucumber runs!

Welcome To Dream Chaser Ranch

Hehehehe, anyway, rant done. I love barrel racing and it shocks and disgusts me that women can be that viciously cruel to an animal - all the while condemning MEN as the rodeo abusers!

Have you ever heard of Fallon Taylor? She is pretty quiet, she kicks a lot, but I don't think she uses spurs or whips.

As someone who enjoys rodeos? That first video made me a bit sick to my stomach. What people seem to miss is that this happened at a prison rodeo. One of the most idiotic ideas I've ever come across in the animal world. I'm all for animals healing people, but this isn't how its done. This video is just a testament to how rodeos can turn sour when put in the wrong hands. When handled by professionals they're a great show of what horses can do for us. You're not gonna find an atv that can cut like a real good quarter horse.
