There is a wide range of tools used in rodeos, but I’m only going to mention the most controversial. One tool that is highly debated in the rodeo and livestock business is called the cattle prod a.k.a the hot shot. The hot shot is a hand held tool that comes in many sizes like pocket sized ones to 5 foot long. The hot shots are battery powered and are used to move cattle. How it does that is by having a small amount of electricity pass through the tool and onto the animal. The amount of electricity is so small of an amount that it doesn’t hurt the animal it only alerts them. Like many tools if it is misused then it can be harmful to the animal, just like in the working industries. If they misuse a tool it can harm or kill another person. “An important tool in a livestock operation is the cattle prod. Since large, untrained animals do not reliably respond to voice or hand signals, an effective device is needed for the safety of both people and animals.”(Burdick). Another tools that is highly used in the rodeo and livestock industry is spurs. Spurs are worn on the back of the cowboy/cowgirl’s boot and is then used to roll on the horse’s side where the stirrups are. The spur helps guide and tell the horse what the rider wants it to do. The spurs just like the cattle prod are not used to hurt the animal but can cause damage if they are misused. “Spurs used by bareback and
When trying to decide on a career path, a veterinary technician is a good choice for those who enjoy working with animals. It allows people to pursue their passion and also earn a comfortable living. The job of a veterinarian technician is much like the job of a nurse to a doctor. A veterinarian technician assists veterinarians with duties such as surgery and carrying out the orders they have prescribed.

Establishing leadership begins with Natural Horsemanship as a foundation. The safety concerns stated above will rarely present themselves in a horse that understands that humans are the leader. Clinton Anderson’s book, Establishing Respect and Control for English and Western Riders, gives demonstrations of Natural Horsemanship techniques that will establish and maintain a stable relationship between a horse and rider. In the field the horse needs to have a leader. A specific example in his book is the “Hula-Hoop Method,” This method teaches the horse that he must respect his owner’s personal space by making him back up with a whip unless he has been invited in. This simulates how the horse would respect the top horse in the pasture, if he comes near it uninvited he will be pushed away. Once the horse understands that the owner is in charge, he will start to understand that all humans are in
Rodeo is one of the oldest sports to exist in the United States; with the first rodeo being held in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1872. Baseball is the only sport older than it. Today, many people and organizations are trying to shut down rodeo because they claim it is cruel to animals. The sport of rodeo is not cruel to animals through the care and treatment of the livestock and performance horses.
The world of a rodeo animal is said to be bad, but really is not all bad. Yes, I understand that it is not all good. There are some bad apples in every tree. Some people would say that we made them mean and mad to get a good show, but really we don’t. Like “bunking horses are just horse that love to buck, they come from racetrack, feed lots, ranches, and just about everything equine.” So, how do we “breed” them to buck if they do it because they loved to do it we just take what they love to do and put it to use? PETA wants to say that the spurs cut and injure the horses, but the reality is that all most of them are not sharp. Yes, they wear them but not to hurt the animal. I wear spurs when I do my barrel racing but that does me I have to use
One of the first things that you should do is the Jeffery Method. "Before you des entire him to the saddle, jump up and down on him, rub all over him, lean over the top of him" (Lewis). "When you 're leaning and jumping all over him, keep your knees together so that if he jumps you 'll land on your feet and won 't get hurt"(Lewis). This prepares the horse to have weight on him. When you do anything you always want to have a lead rope on him, that way if he decides that he wants to run you could stop him. When saddling locate your horses withers. This is located between the horses neck
After brushing is complete, a showmen must blow the hair in a forward direction from a farther distance to help train the hair. Finally, the calf should be rinsed with water, combed forward, and taken back into the cooler room. Show cattle should have their heads tied up for at least two and a half consecutive hours. This is a prime time to do this and to lower their heads at night feeding time.

“In fact, if a flank strap is drawn so tight as to be uncomfortable, the horses and bulls will likely cease to buck or not perform to the best of their ability. The best rodeo livestock are those with a natural inclination to buck for the purpose of unseating a rider. (as cited in PRCA, 2015)” Bucking horses are not wild, but they aren’t saddle-broken either. PRCA stock contractors have spent lots of time and money researching, breeding and purchasing top bucking animals. They know better than anyone that only a small percentage of animals actually have the desire to buck. There are a number of breeding programs that are in place that are specifically to rise bucking stock. “It’s part of them,”

The gripper structure anchor of the top cable assembly is attached with the appropriate anchor. The gripper could be screw attached onto an expansion anchor or screwed direct to the structure. The next step is to thread the aircraft cable through the gripper anchor cap and completely screw the cap into the gripper structure anchor. The aircraft cable hangs freely at each anchor and the bottom cable assembly is attached to the canopy before raising the canopy and attaching both assemblies together as shown in Figure 48.
