Mexicans Bringing Abuse to the US

We have discussed the abuse of horses as manifested by the Bureau of Land Management’s round-ups to accommodate the needs of ranchers for more grazing land. However, there are other horrendous abuses of horses taking place, and one of them is charreria, or horse tripping. This is an incredibly brutal “entertainment” that has found its way into western rodeos in the USA.According to a description from, “Charreria is the official national sport of Mexico.
