    HL, she means that every topic about rodeos eventually ends up as a debate where some people shout about how horribly the animals are treated and others say that everything's okay and they are born to do it. People pick a side and then the battle begins.

    Let's please not turn this into one of those threads.

    I'm sorry, but that's the way I feel about it.. I just don't get why people actually enjoy watching helpless animals suffer

    Fair enough. The way I feel about it is that none of the animals suffer. If you don't like Rodeo, that's fine, but this thread is supposed to be about what we like about the sport.

    I know.. but I just can't stand how many people enjoy something like this..

    Read this:
    Rodeo Cruelty

    There are tons of other sites with info. As well

    Seriously, let's not turn this into a debate. I could make plenty of arguments of any horse sport being cruel.

    I have said that I don't think calf roping can be safe for the calf, but the other events are not cruel as a general rule. I think every person who has rodeoed has heard the arguments of how we abuse our animals, but it's actually quite the opposite.
    I rodeo, I am not cruel to my animals.

    I respect your opinion, I really do, but can we not make this thread turn into an argument like every other rodeo thread?

    I find it funny that the ones who say "it's cruel!" have usually never been to rodeos, hung out with rodeo people, or done rodeo themselves.

    I trust the info of people have been "behind the scenes" for years over the people who say it's abuse just because the animals aren't treated like fragile china in the part that THEY see
