This is horse-tripping. It is considered a great sport at rodeos across the US and Mexico. Fast-moving horses like Thoroughbreds off the track and Arabians are bought cheap at livestock auctions and “rented out” for these events.
Horses are fast-moving animals with a high center of gravity and long, fragile legs. Tripping ends in leg injuries, shattered limbs, dislocations, a rifle bullet out in back where the crowd can’t see.
Before it was made illegal in California one feedlot owner leased out 75-100 horses a season to local events, the last year only 2 horses survived to the end.
Horses sent on trucks to slaughter houses in Mexico are often diverted to these events, where they will go through this until they are too injured to run or until it’s time to get back onto the truck.
Raise your voice. Let it be known that horse tripping and slaughter are not acceptable.
If you support this in any way then you can just hop right off my blog and go fuck yourself with a cactus.
