1. There are equestrian sports specific to rodeos,

but I wouldn't call a rodeo a sport. More like a collection of various equestrian sports related to cowboy life. So, no steeplechase or dressage at a rodeo

7. The competitive spirit of your horse is one of the things I enjoy at the rodeo.

5. Yes and no.

It's more of a sport than NASCAR though. There's a lot more skill/danger involved, but a lot of it is up to interpretation by judges though. It has the most important and thankless job in sports though: rodeo clown.

10. I used to do barrels,

that, I considered a sport (a bit biased probably!). The rest of it. now, I can't even watch. I saw too many animals hurt in the pens and chutes, chuck-wagon racing, and even team-roping. I've become uber-sensitive to it.

12. Yes

If fishing is a sport, anything is a sport.
