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.
