Shortly after a horse is born it should be trained without a saddle on the ground (Conditioning Young Horses” 3). This will teach a young horse to show respect for the trainer and give the horse a positive mindset. Exercising a young horse can be extremely beneficial for the development of their muscles, joints, and tendons (“Conditioning Young Horses 1”). The first three years of a horse’s life are very important for the mental and physical development of the young horse. A young horse will normally be easier to train under saddle once you have developed a relationship with the horse on the ground. Young horses will often have “training issues” under saddle which is normally caused by being stressed and not being mature enough to be under saddle (Geor 2). At the age of two, a horse cannot physically perform to its fullest potential, unlike a horse that is skeletally mature (“Conditioning Young Horses” 4). Even though a horse should not perform before the age of three there are many things a trainer can work on with a horse preparing him or her for being trained under
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

In North America, wild horses are often labeled as non-native, or exotic species by most federal or state agencies, such as the National Park Service, etc. Despite this, horses were originally indigenous to North America millions of years ago, however, some found their way to what is now Europe and Asia before they died out and became extinct around 2 million years ago. It wasn’t until 1493 when the Horse was finally re introduced. On Columbus’ second voyage to the Americas, Spanish horses were brought back to North America, first in the Virgin Islands, then in 1519, they were reintroduced to North America, in modern‐day Mexico. From there they then radiated throughout the American Great Plains. The Native Americans were extremely intrigued with the new creatures that the old world had brought with them. However, it was strictly prohibited, by Spanish authorities, for Indians to have ownership of horses. That was until the
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.
Barrel racing ranks up there as one of the most dangerous sports. Riders For Helmets shares “ that each year in the United States on estimated seven million people ride horses.” There is lots of major risks with this. The rate of serious injury per hour is estimated to be the same as that of motorcyclists. “ In 2007 seventy eight thousand two hundred seventy nine people visited the emergency room due to horse related injuries. So far I have had none but that’s a staggering number.
“The jungle” and “Genesis of the tenement” both contain conflicting and negative impacts. The authors may both have similarities on their purpose to create their text. Though it is clear that they both contain differences too. Upton Sinclair thought that the workers at the factories were not being treated well. Jacob Riis knew that the people in the tenements were living in horrible conditions, and that no one would intervene. Not only did he go to these tenements to write about them, he also took pictures of what was happening inside those tenements. In the tenements, lived very poor people, so even 5 dollars would be too much for them. While the rent was too high for these people, the wages were too low for the factory workers. “Their rent was eight dollars and a half for a single room on the top-story, so small that I was unable to get a photograph of it even by placing the camera outside the open door. Three short steps across either way would have measured its full extent.” ( page 387 lines 140-144 ). Not only was the rent high, the living space of this colored family was not comfortable. These people had to live in very small places, because they didn’t have anywhere else to go.
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.
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.
Imagine sitting on the bleachers cheering on the jockeys and their horses, but, multiple red flags are being set off. Thoroughbreds collapse on the ground from exhaustion and jockeys begin whipping the horses. This is no sport, this is a death run.
New research has revealed more information about communication among horses. Understanding how horses communicate helps with training, handling and care. Because horses most commonly communicate through posture, gestures and expressions, horse owners should be able to read their horse’s body language. If a horse has a droopy lip, ears resting back, cocked back leg, and a lowered tail, the horse is relaxed. Other signs such as flared nostrils, bulging eyes, and tense muscles can indicate that the horse is anxious or scared. Horses’ ears alone can express a lot. If they are pinned back, the horse is angry and ready to kick out. If they are turned to the side, the horse is asleep and relaxed. If they are positioned backwards, the horse is listening
“You want the messey agreement, you do know what that means”. The movie Intolerable Cruelty brings to light the messay agreement which is a prenuptial agreement which cannot be broken, it is said to be “ironclad”. In this prenuptial agreement whatever possessions that the couple bring into the marriage, will be return to them if the marriage is dissolved. Also, any earnings made during the marriage will be given to the person who earned it. No one can profit from the marriage. The prenuptial agreement only protects the wealthy and without it they are exposed. This paper will seek to find how does this movie relates to the economic theory asymmetric information.
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.
The relationship between humans and horses throughout history has consistently followed the same types of patterns. Some people see horses as sweet companions to bond with, while others see them as work animals. However, the one idea that needs to be grasped by every person is that horses need proper training. My argument is that horses need to be taught manners based on how horses naturally establish a pecking order in a herd. This type of training is called “Natural Horsemanship”. Natural Horsemanship is the best training method because it establishes safety and a good relationship between the horse and handler.
