To the OP - You keep backtracking. You say you want an end to rodeo. All your points as to why it should end have been refuted. Here's my next question: Do you believe rodeo should be ended, or don't you?

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Any dog can attack, but pits are bred to be the best at it. I don't think they should necessarily be banned or killed. They shouldn't be in town where children are riding bikes, screaming, and running because that triggers the instinct to catch. I won't have one, I hate them but they're good at catching something by the throat or head

sorry that's off-topic

You obviously know nothing about the breed.
Golden Horse and DrumRunner like this.

There was a jumper that died recently in the ring. Ban jumping!
There have been horses who have died right on the tack. Ban racing!
There have been horses who have died in all disciplines at shows, in events. Ban shows and events!
There have been horses killed by dogs. Wait. We are trying to ban any dog that could bite, so in the meantime, lets pass legislation to make it illegal to keep horses and dogs within fifty feet of each other at all times.
I had a horse trip and break her neck in the pasture one day. Another was struck by lightning. Another ate something that gave her botulism which killed her and her unborn foal. Pastures are not safe. Ban pastures!
Where are we then to keep them because a horse can get cast in his stall and potentially die from it. We MUST ban stalls!
Hmm, now where do we put our horses?
Let's tie them outside the stall! Oh wait. There have been horses who have pulled back in panic and broken their necks. Halters, leadropes, and tying your horse are now banned!
How about trailers? Nope there have also been horse who have died in trailer accidents. They too must be banned for Spirit's safety!
Oh no! Even though I have gift wrapped my horse and taken every precaution to keep my pony safe, he has a tiny cut that might bleed if he moves the wrobg way and tears the skin. I MUST MUST MUST call my vet out immediately. What? My vet has gotten life in prison for euthanizing one or two of the poor horses above and veterinary medicine is a barbaric practice that kills so many defenseless sweet innocent horses? It too has been banned?
Oh my. Run for the hills! Here comes the number one killer of horses. There is no horse alive that can escape life itself. We must stop creating life lest one die.
People don't help either. More often than not, they hurt! Let's ban people too!
