This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about Equine Exploitation (Horses, Ponies, Burros, etc.) is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Equine Exploitation (Horses, Ponies, Burros, etc.) - Rodeo - Horse Bucking - 02) The foundation of the bucking events is the buck strap, also known as a flank strap. Once a horse is moved into a bucking chute, the buck strap is loosely fitted around the flank area like a belt. A contestant gets on the horse and prepares to ride. At the contestant's nod, the chute gate is opened. At the same time a person behind the chute pulls on the buck strap, tightening it around the horse's very sensitive flank area. This is similar to grabbing a very sensitive nerve area of a human being. Just as a person would instinctively fight to escape the tormenting grip, so does the horse fight and buck in a futile attempt to escape the buck strap.
