I fricking love ranch rodeos!!!!! They do a couple a year down the road from us.

I don't know if any of you have seen her on here, but in other threads I have posted pics of a beautiful palomino QH mare I had. Guess what she used to be? A bronc horse.
I agree not all of them come out bad, some come out of it real well. She probably only did it for a couple years since we got her when she was 6, and she had a foal at 2 or 3yrs old...
But although she came out of it physically fine, this horse who was naturally timid of everything new, had mental scars from it. The first night we had her she busted through our electric fence, and LUCKILY a farm a few fields over saw her and caught her. It took us probably at least a month to let us walk up to her without running off.
And I could put a rope (like a lasso) around her girth fine, but the moment there was a cinch on her girth, she automatically went into a bucking fit. And she could really buck too :/

I figure a few will have to be worked with more than others. Some horses are more sensitive. But shes fine now?

Yeah.... I think physically she's the kinda bucking horse you want, but not mentally... She's VERY sensitive.
And we don't have her anymore, but last I heard she is.. I hope she still is. I've actually been trying to find her to see how she is now :/

I am a cowboy, 3rd generation. Not only am I cowboy I am a former bronc rider. I dont hit women, or horses, or dogs. Hell I dont even step on spiders, My grandad and uncles never laid a hand on their wives or stock either. When i read the headline, I cam onto this thread expecting to be offended by reading post after post of rodeo bashing. Instead I got a few chuckles, a few OMG;s , and at least one gasp of horror. In fact the only thing I found offensive, is your narrow minded classification of a group of people and a lifestyle that you admitted you know little about. I dont know who hurt you so badly, that this is your visceral reaction. Get some therapy lady. you have some deep seated issues.

I'm glad you got some chuckles out of this :)
And actually I'm glad that nobody's bashing rodeo on here. Yes sometimes things happen, but for the most part, just like in anything else, people try to keep everyone safe.
Personally me myself, as I've stated before I love rodeo, and my most favourite sport to watch is Bull Riding :)

Oh, that reminds me. I have another friend who used to be a bronc rider. He actually won CFD back in the 70s. His way with every animal I've ever seen him interact with is one of the most gentle I've ever witnessed. I love riding with him, because I always learn something new.

Learning never stops

Wish there was more guys like you where I lived!

I might be looking in the wrong spot though...Don't often see many men at my barrel races!

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

On the ex-bronc note-

Where I go trail riding, all the horses are rather docile, though there are a few with a bit of fire. A couple years back they brought in a new horse, and absolutely stunning paint, a real sweetheart. When I found out he was an ex-bronc, I was stunned. Apparently he's an angel to ride, unless you touch his flanks whilst on his back, in which case he'll throw in a few bucks. But for a 'wild bronco' to become a calm trail horse... that's a sign that rodeos don't mistreat their animals (or most of them, at least).
