Animals have a certain place in our lives but they can not replace a daughter a son or a partner. We should not forget this. They are animals that is the problem with alot of you people . You create this imaginary bonds with horses that don't exist. You guys put animals on the same level as human beings.

Steeplechase and jumping events, when the horse falls, it hits something, or something happens that isnt supposed too. Whatever that video is of roping the horses legs, is MEANT to happen. I don't know who in their right mind would deliberatly trip a horse and make it fall. Hopefully someone will throw a rop around your legs, and make you fall. Bet you wouldnt like that too well. And I agree with the above person. This makes me wonder out peoples sanity now a days. If I saw someone do that to a horse in front of me, it wouldnt turn out too pretty. And im glad the guy feels accomplished when he makes the horse fall, I guess he likes the feeling of being a a**. Excuse my language, now im off to doing something better than watching something trying to say the sport isnt cruel. *shakes head*

Are you kidding me? There is ALOT of people who have horses as a partner. Im sorry you don't have the love for animals like most people on here do, maybe you shouldnt even be on here? Gah, im glad I actually have values, and RESPECT my horse.

I don't see how "team mate" relates to "replace a son or daughter"

No one is saying that.

What we ARE saying, is you must respect life.

This is so offtopic of horse but right up there with respect:
Are you aware that in the past 13 years, the chicken industry has begun to take steps in securing the welfare of the laying hens? Why? Because we are trying to respect them, which we weren't doing so well before.

It's still not perfect, but we all know in our right minds that chickens are not going to "replace a son or daughter" and yet they still deserve to be treated well.

Just because you are human, doesn't mean you can treat other life like trash. HORSES included.

Because they are just as much of sentient beings as we are. The only thing that seperates humans from animals is our ability to learn and adapt. Without that, we would be out matched by the vast majority of animals that walk on this earth.

We aren't anthropromorphizing horses. It is you who lacks the ability to recognize animals as more than just animals. They feel pain just like we do. They have emotions and while it may not be how we act, they certainly have a way of showing emotion.

If horses are just horses, then why don't you leave and let us 'emotionals' have our fun?
You're pouring salt in an open wound by bringing tripping back up. If you haven't got that most of 'us' here can see through the load of crap, then I guess that's your own problem.

Most people here don't put horses on the same level as humans. At the same time they do realize that horses aren't on the level of pond scum and are in fact living, breathing, feeling creatures that deserve some respect.

Sports a Sport- Let it happen.
Just choose not to participate in ones you don't agree with.
Simple as that.

I don't treat my animals like human beings, but I also wouldnt enjoy watching them be roped and thrown down and hear applause. I don't treat my dogs like my children, but that doesn't mean they get beat up, abused, hung by their front legs either.
I think maybe you need to quit trying to tell us how we should treat our horses/dogs/animals the same way you do. Most of us are pretty happy with how we treat our animals, and our children.
I think you are WAY OFF BASE and should quit playing this "I am better than all of you".......

Regardless of a bond, respect is respect is respect. I would not, under any circumstance, treat any living creature with the disrespect and disregard that is often shown in these 'traditional' sports such as horse tripping. Whether there is a bond with said creature is irrelevant

As a matter of fact I own a few horses myself . I take good care of them and they are very healthy animals. Your horse doesnt love you they don't think like us. You people have the tendency to love your horse way to much it makes me sick. Which is why you have troublesome horses that buck you off they rear up they walk all over you ec ect and these situations are handled by stupid remarks like"stop that , don't be mean " .
