The term ‘ rodeo ‘ (from the Spanish, rodear) means “to surround” or “go around” in Spanish, and was first used in American English about 1834 to denote a “round up” of cattle.
Other animal welfare groups, including the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), also object to rodeos . The ASPCA calls them “a cruel form of entertainment that involves the painful, stressful and potentially harmful treatment of livestock”.
The rodeo word for a bull or bronc “kicking” in rough stock events. Bulldogger: Otherwise known as a steer wrestler, this is the cowboy who wrestles the steer to the ground. Bullfighter: After each bull ride, this person distracts the bull so the cowboy can escape the arena safely.
