First let me say I am as appalled by the person who says they couldn't see the prod as I am disappointed and ashamed of everyone involved in what I just watched on this video. I grew up around horses, the rodeos and races, my dad was a bronc rider!!! There is no excuse for the needless abuse these wanna be men are inflicting on our most beloved animals. How dare these men call themselves cowboys? I say we should fine every last pathetic excuse for a cowboy involved in the abuse of these animals INCLUDING THE PRCA and ban them from competing for the first offense and jailtime from there on!!! Shame on all of them for ruining the reputation of the real men, the real cowboys, the ones who little boys and girls could dream of becoming, those who proudly risked their lives doing what they loved!!! And to all you "bronc riders"... keep this in mind the next time you get on an animal and prodding it seems like a good idea, when I was a lil girl I told my dad that when I grew up I was gonna ride the broncs just like him!!! I was such a daddys girl!! What will your children say to you? wont your parents be so proud to hear their grand babies tell them? "When I grow up, I wanna abuse animals just like my daddy does!?!!" just like the memory of being shocked will remain with those innocent horses forever, so to shall the image of you guys abusing these animals to make yourselves look like real men not just on you tube but in the hearts and minds of those of us who just watched part or our history, our passion, be forever tainted by you!!! what will you tell your children when they google you and see what you did?

In both instances, all I see is a mans hand pushing the horses head outward, toward the arena...where they want it to go. I don't see any prods in use! But I suppose if you say it loud enough, over and over, you might convince someone. It's working for all of our politicians. Won't be long before you bleeding hearts will be just like sheep in the chutes being led to your own demise, because you were convinced it's the place to be.

Why would anyone want to see animals tortured to perform? It is not a sport when animals are forced to buck or do some other action that they don't normally do. No only is it cruel but it takes the sport out of it. The animals heart is not in it and they don't do a good job at it. Its time for rodeo to go the way of the dodo bird. Extinct!!

That's a shame. I see they are trying to hide it too.
