wrong. the real american pioneers were too busy surviving and protecting what little they managed to own. oh yeah and ripping off and killing off the native american populations and destroying the precious environment in the bargain.

This race has become tradition to the natives, they excell at it and it provides a good gathering that even us pale faces can watch in awe as both rider and horse embrace a sport that is not only a measure of man and animal but courage. Hooka hey!

Are you kidding, how many horses do you think are either put down because of injuries or killed in the real horse races around this country each year. Probably more than is lost in the past 30 years at the suicide race. Of course these are run by rich and important people so no one sees that or hears about it. Find another cause.

wrong. that race is a big effing pile of stoopid, there is no reason why these intelligent and resourceful animals should be subjected to such torture, to such mindless "spoon-fed macho" entertainment. i would rather live in a world made up of compassion, peace, ethics, non-violence and harmony, without all the mindless hatred and oppression thrown in for free. after all it's the animals that pay the costs. so the solution is simple.

educate yourself.

do some basic research.

eat lower on the food chain.

go vegan.

do it today.

yes, we are all rednecks here in Wa. Our entertainment is a lot different than yours, but that does not mean we are wrong and you are right. Open your eyes and see what people are doing to other people in this world. Those horses are from the WILD west and have been raised to run in any terrain. They have been down steeper hills than that from the day they could carry a rider. Why don't you come and see for yourself instead of judging from afar. You don't have a clue.
