Should Jordan Valley rodeo call off the horse roping event? (poll)

horsetrippingLess than a year after the Oregon Legislature banned horse tripping for entertainment, the Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo is planning to move forward with its horse roping event.

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.
