Funny you should bring up harm to spectators. I was at a rodeo once and this bull tried to jump into the bleachers like 10 feet from me. They had a five foot cement wall(the bull cleared) with this cable fence deal on top of it. Luckly the bull couldn't jump that. But it was so scary!
I love bronc riding. Those horses are treated great. I went to the Pendelton round up last year and they weren't using prods on the horses. I don't like them shocking the horses but if its for the safety of the horse and rider its better than a broken leg.
