Does anybody here enter into rodeo competitions. They do not allow it here in my country. The animal anti cruelty is against it. The only time i get close to a rodeo is when I back my own horses.

Hi Miranda,We often go to rodeos but don't take part.We do gymkhana events though.They are fun.They are timed games on horseback.My daughter loves the barrels,that's when you have 3 barrels you have to go around in a cloverleaf pattern.The horse/rider combo that takes the least time wins.It is great fun.

I rodeo and I love it. I have been doing it since I was 3 and it is so much fun. It's my relief and the way I relax.

"Domas" - "Jineteando un bagual" (riding a bronco).
I don't enter into rodeo competitions, as the most I dare is to ride on a tamed horse. Here in Uruguay rodeos are called "domas" or "jineteadas". Holy Week is the time of the year when most of them take place.

In Portugal there are no rodeo, but they do bull fighting and it's the cruelest thing they can do to animals. I don't think that rodeos are that cruel, and sometimes people get real hurt. Thats the price you get for playing with an wild animal.

I attend rodeos when possible and I also have an APHA gelding that I compete in Barrels and Poles on in the National Barrel Horse Association events. I also compete in local Play-days which usually include barrels, poles, speed rounds, and other speed events. I am sorry to hear that rodeos are not allowed in your country. They are a lot of fun!
