If a horse of mine gets injured and depending on the severity of the injury I decide what to do . If they can recover and be sound and good to ride I will keep them if not give that horse away to someone that might take him in . Im not in the horseworld to love them and hug them . Its a sport and we need go horses that can run

THIS! This SO much! I couldn't agree more.

So far, he has not shown anything. Living in a fantasy world, maybe?
And this!

I suspect this is exactly what Evaluna wanted. A flame war IS attention, after all.

'why do I get to live in this great country while people in africa starve to death' its called luck . My horses are well taken care of while others are used not just for mexican rodeo but also american rodeo . Those horses just have different luck.
Yet there are ore than a few people in the US that are HELPING those in Africa with "back luck"... Hmm.

No, you're horses don't have bad luck, they have owners that don't care.. There is a HUGE difference in a true sanctioned American rodeo. Those animals are treated better than most people.

Call it cruel but that's the way life works in general . If you are not a good worker your boss will get rid of you and hire somebody that will work.
Sorry but this is a completely sifferent situation than an a human job. Humans have a choice. Horses do NOT. They depend on US to be responsible and care for them..I'm 100% positive if the "tripping" horses had a chance they would quit you're "Job", until then places like rescues and such take those horses with bad luck into their care to give them a life they actually deserve..Not to be treated like an unfortunate animal with no choice, no love, and no care..To be just treated as though they are worthless and disposable.. It's disgusting.

That is not a sport..Period. That is cruelty and people taking advantage of an animal who deserves better.

I'm sorry but I think VERY LITTLE of a "man" who has to prove dominance over any animal. I'd rather have a man who is made of patience, caring, understand, and passion.. Not a man who has to use cruelty to force dominance over an animal such as a horse.. That, to me, says tons about that person's character.

There isn't enough money in the world that would buy you a ride on one of my horses...I'll sit with bsms and help reload.

This OP is baffling me to no end.

My horses are working ranch horses.
Guess what? They also go on trail rides. Oh, and some of them even barrel race.
I treat them like horses, but I also have a bond with them... there's the thing called trust... if you don't know what it is, you should look it up.

I guess none of us are good enough cowboys for this Mr. Horses-Are-Disposable-And-I'm-Better-Than-Everyone.

Maybe you should stay on your ranch and be a real cowboy and get off your computer. Find attention like a real man.

Maybe we should all get together and invest in a gattling gun?

Good, that is what responsible horse owners do. That's called caring for an animal. It is a sign of mutual respect and yes.. even some love.

Love isn't gushy mushy BS of calling your friend your bestie or your baby or whatever (though some do and that's fine) it's just about respect, trust, and care.

Glad to know you care. Thank you for answering my question :)

As you can see, this thread is closed. There was no possibility of anything good coming out of this discussion, except another display of ugliness. Sorry, but I just can't stand it, and I think I am not alone in that opinion.
