Horse Abuse Documented at Rodeo

The Eugene Weekly | June 21, 2012 | By Camilla Mortensen

Horses were roped by the legs, dragged by the neck and thrown to the ground in a practice called horse tripping at a recent rodeo in Jordan Valley, Ore., and one bucking horse broke its leg. A graphic video of the events from the May 19-20 Big Loop Rodeo was posted on YouTube by the animal advocacy group SHowing Animals Respect & Kindness (SHARK).

According to SHARK the rodeo’s sponsors include Les Schwab Tire Centers. The Les Schwab Facebook page is full of angry comments from customers. The company tells EW it reviews its sponsorships annually and has no comment at this time.

Horse roping is the Big Loop Rodeo’s signature event.
