I certainly haven't seen what I consider to be bashing going on in this thread either, other than a stray post here or there. In fact the OP stated that she didn't want this to be a bashing thread, and that people were welcome to include other disciplines. Am I reading the same thread that those getting defensive are? Or did they read past the title before getting upset?

I guess you don't ride then. You could get hurt.

There are quite a few ignorant , false and blatantly disrespectful comments toward cowboys and rodeo riders on this thread.

So here's mine. I took a friend to s rodeo. He'd never been. Steer wrestling came up. It was a pretty amateur rodeo so the cowboy jumped over the steer nonintentionally. My friend starts clapping and says "yay! He cleared it!!" completely serious. I sunk into my seat in shame.

Ok, least favorite? The guy with the Aussie dog and shep (halftime show). I love watching working dogs demo their skills, but was turned off when he put a monkey in a cowboy suit on the dog's back. I'm not a fan of monkeys and felt that it really cheapened the demonstration.

My favorite was a "sport" I only saw once as a kid...bull poker. 4 cowboys set up a card table and chairs in the middle of the arena and play cards. A bull is released into the arena and the last cowboy to stay in his seat wins. LOL. The bull just pranced into the arena, let us admire him, then started picking off the cowboys one by one. No one got hurt and it was rather funny to watch. I wish they still did that one. :)

I love bull poker!!! At our hometown rodeo they built a four person bull teeter totter... hehe you were pitted against the person opposite you to stay in the air and get high enough to steer clear of the bull.

Again, thank you everyone for not bashing.
Personally, I think when a negative/bashing comment shows up that it is probably best to try and ignore it. Because, if it isn't, it usually leads to more bashing and other negativities. A number of posts end up having to be closed or removed because of it.

Just wanted to say I like your signature. In my own experience I've found that to be all too true
