Id have to say the most dangerous sport our there for horse & rider would have to be chuck wagon racing (in my opinion). It's fun to watch, but it's never safe to have a bunch or horses strapped together, running full speed around a track in groups. If one horse stumbles or trips then everyone goes down & it's alot easier to steer one horse around an accident than 4 or more.
I'm not all activist about it, though. Not gonna stand outside the rodeos holding signs like some ppl do.
