Reading the article (below) that was in the Wyoming news, you might wonder how many “pastures” contain “wild horses” that have had “little, if any, contact with humans?” It could very well be that only “unbroken” horses are used in these Wild Horse Races. (But, should any horse be treated in the way they’re treated in Wild Horse Races?)
You might wonder if any of our wild horses, or their offspring, might in some instances have ever been used in any rodeo Wild Horse Races. After the BLM sells wild horses in bulk sales (many horses, often by the truckload), it seems they don’t know where the horses go. Some wild horse mares may have even been used to breed bucking stock.
