AQHA supports horse tripping?

I just saw this video and I have to say that im shocked that so many people actually think that this is a cool thing to do. I know that SHARK can be very biased and sometimes not know what they are talking about but this is just shocking. What do yall think?

Being an active AQHA member for many years I would strongly urge you to write the AQHA or even call them and ask them what their stance is before listening or assuming some fanatical animal rights group is right. Give them a chance to tell you what they feel and where they stand on this, as I really doubt many are "for" this practice.

I"d bet there is a LOT more in the bill than a ban on horse tripping. I wouldn't support a ban on roping a horse's feet either, although I would support one on horse tripping at rodeos. Bottom line for me? The 'animal rights' groups have a long history of distorting and lying about what others believe...and I wouldn't trust ANYTHING that comes from SHARK.

Riders ask "How?" Horsemen ask "Why?"
