If the Folsom rodeo hasn't changed much every minute of it is fun.

I last attended 1968.

The opening ceremony was an accasion for me to introduce the Flag of Bavaria. (Capital City Munich)

The parachutist did a good landing with the big flag.
And the horse/bull/buffalo/sheep riding was fun too.
The fireworks are awesome!!

The only thing which was a bit annoying was the fact that there are no wildlife colts used for riding. (except for cow roping)

I bet you'll jump about the same if you get that treatment. :)

Didn't you visit Folsom State Prison? A very interesting place!

I'm not sure whether they are wildlife colts or not but the horses and bulls were pretty wild. The riders fell down mostly within 4 seconds. One of them needed a stretcher to be carried out of the area.

Mike, is it in every April in your region?

You just need to observe what happens. :confused:

The colts behave like crazy when they're released from the box (with the rider sitting on them).

After time out (if the rider has reached the minimum time (normally eight seconds) to stay on the back) or if he's down two riders remove the belt sqeezing the balls of the poor animal. :mad:

With that measure they also remove the hard pain from the horse.

The only Bronco I know of is a USAF airplane used for close air support.

Hi,

Seriously I didn't see that happen. After the rider is down, another 2 riders will chase the horse back into the gate.
Did you mean they tighten the balls of the colt with belt for them to get mad?? That's animal abusing..

It is cruel, but not surprising, considering they castrate calves with no anesthesia all the time, and in some places still brand them. And obviously they kill them for food.

Those two riders do exactly what I have discribed. They take the 'pinched' horse in the middle and one of them removes the belt.

This is done within a split of a second and you have to watch closely what happens.

They won't have to chase the horse back into the box. It will be as peaceful as normally - just standing around and filling the arena.

Did you now see the big belt? :)

I really thought that the belt is used for them to hold and control the horse, never thought of tightening their balls.. That's too bad :(

Good to know horses have no hands. They'd take off that belt and spank their torturers. :)

Controlling and holding horses is done with a device fitted in their mouths with leather strings on it. (sorry, don't know the english term, German: Trense + Zuegel).

You can see those devices in the short movie.

In english its called a bridal.

which reminds me of an old joke:
an Ahmish man and his new wife walk up to the counter at a hotel. The man says "We're on our honeymoon, we'd like a room" the manager says "Wonderful! would you like the bridal?" to which the Ahmish man replies "No thanks, I'll just hold on to her hair till she gets used to it."

Thanks for the vocabulary.

It's not easy to find the translation at Google. Googling for "Zuegel" you'll get a biography of Mr. Zuegel.

Bridal: :D

It's actually called a Bridle. Sounds almost the same, but as you noted in the joke, a few letters make all the difference.

According to my knowledge there must be a big difference in pronunciation.

Bridal = Braidl, Bridle = Bridle

So bridle is the 'mouthpiece' I think. (Trense). So how you call the thing attached to it to enable the rider 'steering' the horse?

Thanks anyway. :)
