In case anyone thinks there is nothing wrong with horse tripping, I will share the story of a horse who was severely traumatized by horse trippers in Nebraska. Here is Jack Tripper's story:

"horse-tripping is so cruel that it has been banned in several U.S. states, including California, Florida, Illinois, Maine, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, in film and TV production, by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), and by the American Quarter Horse Association."

There is something mentaly unbalanced in people who abuse animals in the name of "tradition"--which means there are a lot of mentaly unbalanced people in our society. Everytime I hear someone say its their "tradition" to do whatever to an animal--I want to say its my "tradition" to hit you with this baseball bat--since baseball is a national pastime in the US. Makes about as much sence to make that comment as it does for people to make a comment in the name of "tradition" that is abusive to animals. How stupid these people are. Tradition is a 4th. of July picnic--birthdays-parades--etc.--not to abuse an animal. That is just plain sick.

Please Please help us ! just leave a polite comment saying you will spend your money in another place if this allowed to continue and horse tripping has nothing to do with our Western Heritage , this bill also protects steers from the tail twisting . We have a huge and very vocal Hispanic population here and it's so important we let them know we are louder . It's starting to help on the Federal level with the mustangs but we need to protect our horses - Arabians are so popular for this torture because they are smaller and lighter . Take just 30 seconds today right now to fill in the form and share this on FB or other horse forums . Thank you

Thank you - Heidi and Loriwoo I did put it on my FB page and asked people to share it but didn't post to any of the groups because most are breed and discipline specific and I don't want to offend anyone ( I can't believe I have to be so PC ) . If you are in one of the States that has already outlawed it make sure to say it has not effected Ranching or Traditional Rodeo .
A source just told me that they tacked on " no hot shoting" and now the Rodeo people are upset and will try to get it defeated as written . Hot shoting is using a cattle prod or hot shot in the shoots to get bulls and horses to come out bucking at Traditional Rodeo .
