I just did some research for ya, too.

33.
Rule 9.6. Neckrope Must be Used in Tie-Down Roping. In tie-down roping, a neckrope must be used. Calves may
Not be intentionally flipped backward. Contestant must adjust rope and reins in such a manner that will prevent horse from
Dragging calf. Rope to be removed from calf’s body as soon as possible after “tie” is approved. Roping claves shall be
Strong and healthy.


57.
Rule 11.6.5. No Jerk Down. Rodeo Committees have the option to request a special ground rule for “no jerk down” in
The tie down roping.


So the first is subjective (and does not apply to any kind of falling besides a back-flip), and the second is optional.

Not scared, I just don't have much else to say. I've said my thoughts. There is not much need to keep repeating them. I've gone over the rodeo ethics debate many times and don't really feel like jumping into it. Everything I would say is already being said pretty much.


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

Right, that is the kind of jerk down I have been referring to, which most rodeos do adhere to.

I think we can all agree that it all depends on the people participating in the sport- there are people who don't deserve to be near any animals at all, and there are people who are respectful and treat them well. It's the same for every discipline- western and english.

Soenjer55, you are right.

At this point I think we all could agree to disagree... but my stubborn side will argue it out until there ain't nothing else to argue..LOL

Plenty of other arguments to go around. Head on over to the Horse Meat thread for a kick. Apparently you're automatically an ******* just for having opposable thumbs. At least that's what I've been getting from the more recent posts.

Oh, I've done the horse slaughter/meat argument before. I know it makes me a bad person, but I kind of enjoy riling them up, because they just get into a 'you suck', 'no, YOU suck', 'well you suck MORE' kind of thing, and it's just too ridiculous...
I like this thread because everyone is finding back-up information, and arguing respectfully. I don't come across that as often as I would like.
And go for it, cowchick!! Lol
