There are three main ways in which you can acquire horses for rodeo riding purposes.
Buying the horses
Firstly, you have the option of buying the horses you are to use for rodeo riding purposes. This is the option that most people use. In most cases, you have to buy a young horse, and then train it specifically for rodeo riding purposes from a young age. You can alternatively buy a horse that is already trained and ‘experienced’ in rodeo riding.
Of course, you have to understand that horses tend to be costly animals. The average worker may not really be in a position to afford buying a horse – especially one that has specially been trained for rodeo riding – without taking a loan. Take, for instance, someone who is employed at PepsiCo – meaning that he gets his paychecks through the MypepsiCo portal. Unless he is in top management, it is highly unlikely that such a person would ever go to the mypepsico sign in page, login, navigate to the paychecks section — and find that he has magically earned enough money to buy a rodeo horse in any one month! But if one is willing to save money slowly over time, they can soon or later get enough cash to finance the purchase of a rodeo riding horse.
Hiring the horses
There are folks who keep rodeo riding horses, which they hire out to rodeo riding enthusiasts who don’t have their own animals. So this yet another option open to you, when it comes to acquiring horses for rodeo riding purposes. If you only take part in rodeo riding once in a while, this may be the best option for you.
Borrowing the horses
If you know someone who has rodeo riding horses, and you are in friendly terms with him (or her), you can request them to give you their animal(s) for a day or so. As long as you commit to take good care of the animals, chances are that you will be allowed to use them. But this only applies if you are dealing with animals that are usually used for rodeo riding purposes. Otherwise it is unlikely that an ordinary horse owner — who doesn’t use his animals for rodeo riding purposes — would allow you to take his dear animal(s) for rodeo riding. That is, understandably, because of the risks involved. But if you are dealing with horses that are usually used for rodeo riding, and the owner knows that you will take good care of them, he is likely to allow you to use them for a day or so. Still, if you keep on borrowing the animals, the owner is likely to demand that you start paying for the animals’ upkeep, or buy your own. Again, this is understandable, given the high costs associated with the maintenance of rodeo riding horses.
