Rodeo stamp by sorrelstang Rodeo stamp by sorrelstang
An I heart rodeo stamp for those of you who heart rodeo :D These stamps are a weird long+short format that is going to cut the heads off of any cowboy when I've got the bull/ horse in the shot...oh well I guess.

In an attempt to redeem myself, yes this is one of my images. One of my favorite bull shots.

to use copy the thumb text at the bottom right corner and paste it wherever....this only works if you're a subscriber apparently :P


My policy on my rodeo images can be found here [link] If you don't like rodeo, you are free not to look! Rude and/or inappropriate comments will not be tolerated.

How can you NOT tell that those calf jerk downs are not extremely painful for those calves?

I'm glad to find anyone else on Deviant Art that loves rodeo ^^
A lot of people don't understand anything and by seeing false informations about rodeo, thinks that it's animal cruelty... What a pity -__-

Rodeo's are animal cruelty. How is it okay, please tell me, to place a tight strap on the flank of an animal to make it buck? This is sick a disgusting.

Don't forget that they also shock them, poke them in the butt hole with a sharp wire, and the show keeps on going even though the horse has a shattered leg. For stallions or bulls, they sometimes get shocked in the testicles. There's also foal races too and that puts the foals at risk if they injure themselves. Calves get injured too when they are flipped over on their back with great force by the rope around them. These are foals and calves! Baby animals that can easily have shattered bones from these acts!


It's sad that people don't understand what harm they go through...

(I know this is an old comment but why not if it's about agreeing?^^)

Well for starters you can't make a horse do anything against their will. Ever tried getting a frightened horse in a trailer? Not. going. to happen. Not, that is, until the horse is willing. Broncs are trained, not forced into bucking. The horses learn quickly that bucking means going back to the herd and eating, which is really what every horse wants.

Secondly, the flank strap is not to cause pain. Putting a strap around an animals flank and tightening it until it causes pain is actually an old process used to restrain animals called "girding". The pain causes the animal not to move, so wouldn't be helpful for anyone in rodeo to cause the animal pain.

I've seen broncs wearing a bucking strap come out of the chute and not buck (plenty of times), I've also seen broncs WITHOUT a bucking strap buck like mad ( like this [link] and also like this [link] )

If you have any other questions feel free to ask :-)

Actually you can, not through force, though, it doesn't work that way. Horses, you can tell if you knew the signs, are always fearful in rodeos. and if the flank strap didn't hurt them at all, why would they buck? It all comes out of fear, they buck and run because they are flight animals.

hun how many rodeos have you been to? How many broncs have you watched calmly enter the bucking chutes (a sign that they aren't fearful, because a horse would never willingly put itself back into a situation that it perceived as frightening or dangerous), buck it's rider and leave the arena, calmly allow it's tack to be removed (if they had just been terrified or hurt they would be anything but calm), take a nice dust roll back in the pens (which is a sign that they're comfortable in their environment, a fearful horse would never lay down in dangerous environment), and then bury their head in a pile of alfalfa (another sign that they're comfortable in their environment, a fearful horse would ignore food, or take snatching mouthfuls, throwing its head back up to watch for danger with every bite).

My answers: I've been to HUNDREDS of rodeos and witnessed this HUNDREDS on HUNDREDS of times. I'm well aware of equine body language and the message broncs send me loud and clear is that they're unfazed by the whole ordeal. If anything it's a minor inconvenience to them that temporarily comes in-between them and a pile of hay.

Your argument is assuming that horses can't be trained, that jumpers jump out of fear, or racehorses run out fear, or reiners spin out of fear. The fact that horses are doing something high action does not mean that fear is causing it. Broncs are bred and trained to buck like any other equine athlete. Horses are trained using cues, the bucking strap is a cue for them to kick out and nothing more.

Ok I've tried to reason with you but you obviously don't want to listen and are far more interested in trolling. I have better things to do with my time than argue with a kid. Peace.
