Steve hit this one on the head.  What assurances do we have that 
anything will be done?  None at all.  What does the reporting party 
gain?  Nothing.  What does he have to lose if nothing is done?  His 

Sorry to say that the world is filled with folks pushing the envelope in 
all aspects of life whether it is speeding, welfare systems and even in 
non competitive horse events.  We actually witnesses people injecting 
their horse with something.  The rider said out loud that the horse 
needed adrenaline.  This horse is one of the hottest horse to start with 
and refuses to enter the arena and must be led in.  There are no 
monetary prizes in this rodeo other than end of the year trophies and 

Obviously some people and families are driven to win at any and all costs.

Dear CQ please tell us what if anything was done with the 4500 watt 
youtube incident.  If you want us to help you we need to know that you 
will take the report seriously and have the guts to actually do what is 
right.  Where is the transparency in the process?  Once again there in 
none unless you are in the know.

When the Organizers show that they are very serious in stopping cheating 
then maybe the other players will step up.  You do your part and we will 
do ours.
