    I think next time one of my crazy ass cows runs off I might just try that tailing technique! That might be fun.

    We will be expecting video. I don't know about fun to try, fun to watch yes.

    For sure! That looks like a good time. Knowing me I would mess that up and end up with a steer under my horse and we would just be a big ball of hair, dirt and slobber somersaulting across the sagebrush..tee he....which wouldn't be the first time....

    Seriously, you guys actually applaud horse tripping? And what is the purpose of flipping the cattle like that? Who can enjoy watching scared animals running for their lives then brutally knocked to the ground? Notice how the video mainly stayed on the roper, what do you think is happening to the animals involved?
    Some of you are the same ones who bash a newbie for being in a horse's mouth too much then you laugh at something like this?
    I've stayed out of the slaughter debate because there is no easy answer to that & everyone is entitled to their opinions but to encourage & get a kick out of this is way beyond comprehension.
    I've enjoyed this forum & even learned a few useful things & have tried to be of help also when I could but this has been an eye opener for me & not the kind of place I'm proud to be a member of.

    It isn't horse tripping anymore, it is more like horse roping. It would be no different than team roping in an American Rodeo. However, I did see in one of the runs one of the guys didn't slide his rope enough and the horse fell. Usually they just get them stopped. The reason they don't show the horses is because they are showcasing the roper and his ability, they are not trying to "hide" the horse. Steer tailing is also very similar to steer wrestling in American rodeo. Are you against American rodeo too?

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion like you said, and in my opinion I think there is nothing wrong with this, it is part of their tradition and I can see the art and beauty in it. I am pro-horse slaughter, not because I want to eat horse meat and kill a bunch of horses, but I would like to see an option for horses to be put down humanely. If you ever watched horses starve to death and die slowly, you mind change your mind, perhaps not.

    I don't know if you are directing the comment about a different thread about a newbie getting in a horses mouth towards me or not. I do not recall this, if that is me, what thread?

    I also have learned new things and I hope that I have helped somebody with my experiences on here. I don't always agree with other people on here just as not everyone is going to like what I say, but it sure isn't worth getting so upset over that you don't enjoy being on here.

    I can appreciate the talent involved just as I can appreciate the aesthetic aspects of a bullfight. But I condemn both all the same, finding them reprehensible and truly uncivilized. There are far more productive and humane venues to showcase that skill--ones that don't involve animal abuse.

    Yes, Cowchick, there's a bunch of horse tripping going on. Not the straight line hind leg runs, but the ones where they stand on foot and twirl their ropes as a bunch of horsemen run a horse past, then rope it and jerk it to the ground. On most of the clips they don't show the falling part, but it's depicted a few times, and the intention to throw the horse is obvious, too.

    Steer tailing, I would imagine, is quite a bit more harmful than steer wresting. The cattle are thrown to the ground much harder, and I imagine that broken tails and legs are commonplace. Same with the horse tripping. But that said, yes, I find tie-down calf roping and to a lesser extent bulldogging and team roping (as practiced in American rodeo) to also be cruel and unnecessary.

    The "tradition" excuse is a bunch of bullcrap that can be used to justify anything, from dogfighting to bear baiting to human sacrifice to slavery. Terrible, nonsensical, idiotic argument.

    As I've said before.... Is anyone else tired of people calling rodeo abuse?
