    I KNOW THAT A BABY COW IS A CALF!!! I HAVE KNOWN THAT FOR MY WHOLE LIFE!!
    And I know how a rodeo works, I am very educated on the subject.... I get that the whole cows and calves things work I was merely stating my opinion.... I mean sure I laugh when the bull rider gets flung off and is stepped on or crushed but still I understand how rodeo works... And I respect that sport and I really think I can go Far in Rodeo... Oh And P.S. I AM 13 years old

    You should try out as a Rodeo Clown.

    I am not being facetious--the Clown is a very important part of a rodeo, and helps both humans and livestock. However, you may find yourself being considered a bit young for this position.

    very much agree, rodeo is very close to real still, people get hurt, animals get hurt, but at the same time everyone there feels a respect for the animals involved, and they find it important to show that respect by doing the best job that they can.

    Hang on 8 seconds a week, with free board and lodging, and unlimited travel, I'm in.

    Do I get holidays as well?

    Then you will know what events there are, and you will also know that you will not easily fit into that culture and way of life. I think you need to look at another event, how about extreme cowboy challenge?


    All the fun of the west and not a rope in sight

    Rodeo is a culture, a community.
    If you feel the need to laugh when someone gets bucked off, hurt, or fails in their sport, then you need to not be involved with that sport. That is not showing respect. Laughing at injury is down right dirty.

    The attitude you have will have you run off the grounds in no time.

    Now, WHY do you even want to be involved with the rodeo? Trying to join a fad? Want to know something more "high speed" than WP?
    If you can actually see yourself being good at it, what are you being good at? Why do you think you'll be good at it?

    Answer those, and maybe we can suggest a direction that will work for you, because from the sound of it, rodeo is not a place for you right now.

    Get a trainer. It's really easy to ruin a barrel horse, and it's incredibly technical. It's extremely hard even though it looks simple.

    Thanks GamingGrrl, I have a trainer that's working with and my old trainer loves big time barrel racing and I know it is difficult, however I didn't know you could ruin a horse.

    Excuse me?

    When is it EVER funny when someone gets sent to the emergency room?

    You must have a sick sense of humor. Interesting how you think it's funny when a human gets hurt, but yet you have a problem with animals getting hurt. Neither is anything to joke about.

    It's not for you. That's my tip.

    Keep working with your trainer, learn more about the horse world, and mature up. Don't type in all capitals, actually use correct words (if you claim you know a "baby cow" is a calf, then use the word calf), and actually learn about something before you begin spouting about it. No, you do NOT know anything about rodeo. You don't even know what events are in it, so don't try to lie and say you "know how a rodeo works, I am very educated on the subject" because it's quite obvious you are lying through your teeth.

    Any horse can be ruined for an event if you don't know what you are doing.

    Barrel racing (like any other specialized event) is not easy and it takes YEARS to train your horse to do it correctly. Sure, it may look easy to run around 3 cans as fast as you can. Same as it may look easy to simply ride a horse around the perimeter of the arena for WP. Or how it may look easy to glide over 4 foot jumps in show jumping. All of these things take YEARS for the horse to learn correctly and YEARS for the rider to learn correctly. If any of these things are not trained correctly in the beginning, you will ruin the horse.
