Was there ever a time where you were terribly embarrassed because of a minor event; this was me with rodeo. One day I was roping with my sisters and went to go throw my loop but missed the dummy. When I pulled my slack, I noticed I had somehow turned my loop into a figure 8 and had no idea how I did it or how to fix it. I panicked, and my sister had to help me. All I had to do was turn my loop the other way, but I did not realize this because I was too frustrated to figure this out. Many assume that rodeo is easy and for everyone, but in fact it is not. Rodeo allows me to use skills such as speed, strength, courage, and many more to help me later on in my life because Rodeo teaches me to not run from my fears, but to face them. All sections
Starting horses under saddle have been a question many people and trainers have asked for years. There are many benefits to starting a horse before the age of three, but greater drawbacks as well. A horse at the age of three is not skeletally mature enough to carry the weight of a human without major side effects.

The first Indy 500 in 1911 changed several things for Indiana. This event made it more of a tourist area because of the new race track. Not only did it change Indiana, it changed racing.

The horse has worked alongside humans for many years. They have served for a number of purposes in the past such as transport and work in agriculture and battle. “Horses are no longer used in battle, the tractor has largely taken over in agriculture and the diesel engine is the main means of transport. Yet, horses are still held to high esteem.” (Vogel, 2011). Today, horses are mainly used for personal leisure and companionship as well as competitions such as horse racing and show jumping.
