Please use the form at the bottom of this page to contact Nevada state senators
Horse tripping is a cruel form of "entertainment" used in some rodeos,
which involves roping horses by their legs to trip them and violently
pull them to the ground. Horses often sustain multiple serious injuries,
including broken legs and necks, and spinal damage. Steer tailing
involves grabbing a steer by the tail to throw him off his feet. Running
steers are chased on horseback, then grabbed by the tail, and slammed
to the ground. This often results in serious injury, sometimes requiring
In Defense of Animals (IDA) and Action for Animals need your help to ban horse tripping and steer tailing in Nevada. State Senate Bill 72 would prohibit horse tripping and steer tailing for sport, entertainment, competition, or practice. It also includes a provision to prohibit the use of a cattle prod on the face of an animal.
Send a letter to the five senators who are expected to vote on the bill in late March or early April. Urge them to pass this important piece of legislation to protect horses and steers from these cruel practices.
