Washoe County Woman Killed in Carson City Rodeo Horse Accident

Rodeos can be very dangerous for everyone and everything involved: for the humans who ride the animals to the spectators and obviously for the animals themselves. While many see rodeos as part of Nevada’s and the rest of the West’s cultural heritage, the violent nature of the sport creates serious concerns for its future. The recent allegations of animal cruelty at the Reno rodeo have shone a bright light on one of the sport’s closely held secrets.
