Why are they allowed to pollute the air with noise for 3 days straight? I know alot of people around the yambilee are being tortured with the noise. Yes, the same kind of torture that the government uses to torture inmates at Guantanamo. Why can't they make them only play music in the yambilee building and not in the arena?

Also, I noticed that the inmate crews were out this morning cleaning up the aftermath at the yambilee? What is up with that? Seems like it would be against the law to have inmate labor cleaning up after a private function. I never see them cleaning up after someone's wedding reception.

What's the point of even paying to own or rent a barroom when all you have to do is rent the yambilee arena for the weekend. You can play music, sell liquor, and be a public nuisance till 4 in the morning and not even have to clean up the mess. Talk about a great business model.

I'll talk later about the unreal amount of abuse that the poor horses have to endure.

so this weekend they had another ride. of course half of the horses arent properly cared for or dont have shoes but yet they trek the poor horses across miles of gravel roads. Once the poor horse cant go anymore, they get off and beat it until it gives in. I even saw a sheriff beating on a horse with a stick to get it to move. The porr horse was obviously in pain and his mouth was bleeding, I assume because the "cowboy" on his back kept yanking the bit when he wouldnt go anymore because he was in pain.

How long will this continue? why not have the trail ride somewhere that #1, you can ride the horses without making them suffer, and #2, not aggravate the hell out of everyone within a 3 mile radius of the yambilee building with the loud music? Have the ride at the levee, where you have miles and miles of levee to ride along in the grass. Im starting to think the trail ride is more about aggravating people than having a good time and treating your animals humanely. Its a sad situation and not something our parish should promote or allow.
