That is a great photo and a place where I definitely don’t want to be! I added a link to this in my blog. It sure makes you rethink the meaning of “having a bad day”!

lol i think it woulod have been better if the horse had fallen on him, they shock the rodeo horses with tazers. This needs to be stopped. That boy needed to learn a lesson.

beverly.. you’re an idiot. I ride bareback horses and I have never seen a “tazer” behind the chutes. Rodeo stock is taken better care of than average ponies and bulls by a long shot. Our spurs are checked to make sure they cant hurt the horses. There are pads under the rigging and flank. If the horses are uncomfortable they will not perform to their best. With all the starving dogs chained up behind trailers it seems like you’d forget about the awesome horse slammin this kid.

i think the photo is great it has a strong meaning .
the men he deserves it because the this kind “of what people call sports” is animalcruelty, so i think its good what the horse did

i love horses and have had close calls, not like this though. you dont know if this horse was abused or not, though some people do abuse animals.
