    These people play at being ‘cowboys. I truly doubt that a real cowboy would participate in this….destroying the very beings who enable them to work.

  2. I have a good idea lets hitch about 6 or 8 rodeo employees to the chuck wagons and have them run the race with the driver sitting up top popping them with his whip. I would love to see that every time one of them slowed down pop another one on the back or butt, at least they would get a good feel for what its like.

  3. THERE ARE NO RODEO EVENTS THAT DO NOT INVOLVE CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. ALL RODEOS SHOULD BE STOPPED !!!

    A chuckwagon horse broke his leg yesterday and had to be euthanized! He had recently been a race horse. No horse is meant for this brutal event – least of all a delicate racehorse!

    When I hear the word Rodeo, my skin crawls. I hate the animal cruelty that goes on here. Not fun for the animals. They need to remove animals, just have people doing stunts!
