We have written about lawmakers who are promoting bills to shut down rodeo in New York by using falsehoods they are spoon fed from extremist groups. We have also written about the push to end rodeo and animal exhibitions in California. California’s long history with rodeo has very deep roots culturally. At Protect The Harvest we are continuing to investigate these attempts to end animal exhibitions.
Western Sports Industry Coalition
The current proposed ban of rodeo and rodeo-like events in Los Angeles spurred a coalition organized and managed by our friends at Western Justice. This coalition of like-minded groups is much needed to combat the activities of animal and environmental extremist groups. We are a member of the coalition along with many powerful and influential organizations such as: Professional Bull Riders Association (PBR), Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo, the Union de Asociaciones de Charros del Estado California (Union of Charrros Associations of the state of California), Compton Cowboys, Indian National Finals Rodeo (INFR), American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA), National High School Rodeo Association (NHSRA), Pacific Coast Cutting Horse Association (PCCHA), Western Justice,
