Should Jordan Valley rodeo call off the horse roping event? (poll)
From: Oregon Live
By: Katherine Driessen
Rodeo organizers say horse roping is different from horse tripping, which is when a horse’s neck and forelegs are roped, causing it to fall. Animal rights activists disagree: Horse roping is horse tripping, they say.
An online petition that has generated 10,000-plus signatures is calling on the rodeo to cancel the horse roping event. That’s unlikely to happen.
We want to know what call you would make. Let us know in the poll and feel free to expand in the comment section below.
Habitat for Horses is always on the lookout for a few great people, both in the office and on our ranches. The work is unique, the animals are special and we want folks who both know and understand the special connection our animals need.
Don’t forget – if you have adopted a horse from Habitat for Horses we want to show you how much we appreciate your support tomorrow at our Manvel Texas Ranch! Find out more! http://www.habitatforhorses.org/share-your-hfh-horse-adoption-story/
