Since 2009, more than a dozen horses have died in the Calgary Stampede's chuckwagon races. Three horses had to be euthanized after sustaining crippling injuries last year when the wagons they were forced to pull collided.

Signed, also commented , shared and noted.
The mental scars are the deepest, and who knows how many horses are suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, just as some of us humans can. It is not always to body that breaks up, but quite often it is the mind and the soul that suffer the deepest wounds.
However, Cher, thank you for sharing this. I felt physically ill...

Chuckwagons were never meant to be raced against each other just like 18 wheelers were never meant to be raced against each other. The deaths and maiming of horses, and in some cases drivers, is totally preventable and unnecessary.

N&S. I remember the news reports of the "accident" last year. If I remember correctly the death toll was 5 horses. Two chuck wagons collided and an outrider on a horse was also involved. The owner and runner of one of the wagons came on tv. and was crying and said how sorry he was and that the horses were just like his children. And I thought 'well would you tie your children to a wagon and have them race around with it'? Probably not. I hate the rodeo-type stuff where animals are put at risk.

So angrily signed. I wish horses were able to start defending themselves by kicking these SOBs in the head!!
But of course, "humans" choose the most gentle and loving creatures for their horrific uses.

Horses are particularly sensitive beings who are recovering difficult to abuse or accidents. Under their apparent strength, they are fragile beings that require constant care when they are forced to certain forms of labor. Wanting to relive the legend of the land rush, why not! But it absolutely must be done without endangering the horses. Without a guarantee for their safety, such an event should be prohibited.
