What's the worst you've seen done at a rodeo?

Just something to talk about. What is the worst thing you've seen done at a rodeo?
And to keep it safe let's not list names or photos, just say what you saw if you wish to comment here okay? :)

To start off, the worst I saw was a couple years ago in tie down roping. I don't remember what happened, but this guy had a bad run and had to retry. He was so mad that instead of untying the calves legs, he just walked away holding the string, and dragged the calf until it came off. I mean, doing that flipped the calf to its other side and then dragged it

For what its worth, I think this is a dangerous topic. Why single out rodeo? It could easily focus on show jumping or hunter or heck I have seen some pretty bad things at 4 H shows. I think its a bit unfair to "target" rodeo as it gets a lot of bad press in part due to the origins of the sport. There are clearly a lot of pro rodeo (as in fans not professional rodeo cowboy association) members of this board. I would prepare for some not so nice comments from people who feel you are targeting their sport.

The worst I've seen at a rodeo was this guy selling sodas. You wouldn't BELIEVE the price! And it was hot & we needed to pay up or go thirsty! Cruel, he was...

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

Yeah. That's why i said no names or photos. And it's not to target them, it's just more something to talk about. I had something on my mind at the time and it had to do with rodeo, thats y i chose it. And no matter what topic people talk about there always ends up being something bad about it for some reason. I'm not intending to say anything like rodeo is bad, because I myself actually love rodeo.
My favourite sport to watch is bull riding, I love it more than football, even more than hockey. And I myself intend to compete in rodeo events one day.
If it helps then lets just change the topic to horsey stuff in general :/

I saw a calf break a leg in the calf roping one time. He hobbled out of the arena on 3 legs.

What irritates me the most though, although I have only seen in on the internet, is horse tripping. I hate the wild horse races too.

The worst thing I saw at a rodeo was probably a gate sour horse throwing a fit. He backed in to 17 different cars, up an incline, and off the end of it. I don't remember what the thing was, but there was a concrete wall that held the dirt forming the incline, and concrete at the bottom. It was probably three feet high. I'm still surprised he didn't flip over when that happened.
