So rodeos are fun? Fun for whom?


Just notice why the horse will buck and see if it’s fun for him.  When he would rather bear the pain than buck, he’ll be sent to auction at New Holland, PA run by the Amish.  He will not be bought as a pleasure horse, but instead sold by the pound.

LuLu Shriners in Plymouth Meeting will hold it’s 28th annual rodeo in mid-September to raise money for the Shriners.  Exploiting these sentient creatures brings them profits.  Is this morally right?  Is this the right thing to do?

Steve Hindi, a former hunter, does not think so.

These animals will be broken by the time they’re 7 years old, just when they reach maturity, and their hooves will be gone.  American Quarter horses are bred to have small hooves so they’re fast at barrel racing, etc.  But their time is up early.  Semi-gentled horses are meant to buck until they can’t anymore.  Young male calves are broken by all the roping and tying after one show — this rodeo may not have this event, hopefully.

Listen to what Steve Hindi has to say about rodeos here:
