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 growth plates in the vertebrae and in the knees of horses have not yet completely fused (Franz, et al 1). Starting a horse after the age of three decreases the risk of bowed tendons, sprained spines, and the deformation of the carpal bones in the knee.
Organizations like PETA have been trying to get rodeo events banned because they think rodeos are cruel towards animals because of the rough nature of the sport. Those of us who have grown up in the ranching and rodeo industry know that the animals involved in rodeo are extremely healthy and are taken care of better than a lot of other animals, because the rodeo animals have to be in peak performance. If the animals are injured or unhealthy they won 't be able to make money for the rodeos and the rodeo contestants. We believe that rodeo should continue because it is a sport of tradition and teaches people about how life was in the old west and in some cases how cowboying is in modern time. Rodeo is also the
Seabiscuit, An American Legend, is a book about the racehorse, Seabiscuit, who stole several American’s hearts as he made his journey through the horse racing world. Throughout the book, the bond of trust between the horse, trainer, and jockey grows into a greater appreciation and respect for one another. Red, Seabiscuit’s primary jockey, faced several vigorous trials that take place in the racing-world. Nevertheless he never gave up his dream, which was to ride race horses. Seabiscuit traveled all over the country to compete in races, which can be a ridiculously huge strain especially on animals.
In this part of the book, Paul and his friends are out on the front re-wiring the front line with new barbed and communication wires when they hear the shrill cries of injured and badly wounded horses. Additionally, during the bombing, one of their soldiers becomes badly wounded in his leg and will most likely die or never be able to walk again. There is a similarity between this young soldier and the injured horses, made apparent by the comparison the author makes between the two. The young soldier, while human, is helpless after getting injured and will likely die if he is not helped soon. In the case of the horses, they too are at risk of dying if they are not medically attended to quickly. The difference between the
Do you think that rodeo is a type of animal abuse? In my opinion it is not, just because you are using a animal does not mean you are abusing it. Several organizations think that rodeo is a form of animal abuse because the animals are being kicked with spurs or having a rope around their flank to make them buck.
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.
Imagine eating little to no food everyday, eliminating as much body fluid as possible to keep your weight unnaturally low, all while having the possibility of dying participating in the sport that you love. Well this was the life of a jockey in the 1920s and 30’s. Their life was nothing short of appealing. The rigorous lifestyle of a jockey was all to make it big and ride the “big horse”. There were many daily sacrifices and dangers that came along with being a jockey.
Rodeos are big events all over the country. Families come from all over to enjoy watching cowboys compete at the rodeos. While some people come to rodeos to document the abuse and harm that the cowboys are causing the animals. It is a big controversy whether rodeos are animal abuse or not. Animal rights activists are trying to stop rodeos from “abusing” animals, but they don’t know the extensive care that the animals are given.
Have you ever wondered where different breeds of horses originated from? There are over 350 breeds of horses in the world. They go from two feet tall to roughly seven feet tall. Horses are a very useful animal when it comes to almost anything. About a third of the horses in the world are used for recreational use. Horses are bred for many different things like work, thickness of the body, speed, and color.
Horse breeding is basically picking out good genetics to mate two horses to create an offspring that is designed for a specific discipline, such as a racehorse, a grand prix horse for olympic level jumping, a barrel racing horse, etc. This relates to an Equine dentist because I am still dealing with horses. I can still have an impact on making sure an animal has the best life possible by making sure there won't be any genetic mutations such as a bad leg, a crooked neck, or bad teeth. The average salary for a Horse breeder is $37,950 (study 1). This job field is unfortunately looking to decline about 20% by the year 2020 (study 1). I have a friend that I ride horses with who breeds horses for a living, She bred her own horse and it is about a year old now and she plans on training it to jump when it reaches the proper age because that is what she bred it for. It is supposed to be a really really nice horse as well and doctors are very impressed my the way the hose is built. She makes me want to be a horse breeder because she got to basically make her own horse and she gets to have the horse its entire
Therefore greyhound racing must be banned because of what happens behind the scenes such as live baiting, which used live animals and are flung to and fro around from place to place while getting shred to pieces. Greyhound cruelty is so bad that is could kill and this means literally the greyhounds could look great one minute but when on the track they trip and have to euthanised, And greyhound exploitation which is something that is not fair for the greyhound. Such as the dog has to run around a track all day but the owner gets the money, but it's not fair for the dogs. This is why greyhound racing must be

Horse racing is a highly controversial topic in the equestrian world. Many people find horse racing as a great form of entertainment, while others see it as borderline abusive to the horse. Personally, I agree with the latter statement.
