I have to tell you guys that this video is absolutely ridiculous. I did high school rodeo and had friends who witnessed this video first hand.
The horses didn't die, it was fine.
And if a bull is after your horse, if you get in the way it is only going to run you over too. There is nothing you can really do to help the horse than to distract it.
The person commenting on this video is absurd - you can clearly see the guy threw his hat to distract the bull, but the horse threw its head and hit it, clearly an accident.
The people that run & the adults who help with High School rodeo are all voluntary and work very hard to make this thing run for the kids. All the clowns and arena workers are parents who volunteer their time to make it happen for their kids and others. They are highly unappreciated and this video is 100% ridiculous.

The responses to the video and rodeo in general are far more ridiculous than any video could be.

this video terrifies me since Denny, my mustang used to be a bull fighting and tipping pony in Mexico before we rescued him. He literally has a hole in his side where he was nailed by a bull.

...and you would have also been gored. The clowns couldn't save both of you, so they would have had to abandon the horse in an attempt to save you. The horse would have been left with the bull because you were in the way while the clowns tried to do there job.

Everyone is right. This was an awful video, but you would, too have been gored by the ferocious bull.
