Bareback Riding

Bareback (bronc) riding competition is a rodeo event that involves a rodeo participant (Cowboy) riding on a horse (sometimes called a bronc or bronco), that attempts to throw or buck off the rider. The goal is to stay on for 8 seconds and dismount at the Buzzer. Originally based on the necessary horse breaking skills of a working cowboy, the event is now a highly stylized competition that utilizes horses that often are specially bred for strength, agility, and bucking ability. It is recognized by all Professional Rodeo organizations. Points are gained by the horse and the Cowboy’s effort.

Team Roping

Team Roping

Team roping is a rodeo timed event that features a steer and two mounted riders. The first roper is referred to as the "header", the person who ropes the front of the steer, usually around the horns, but it is also legal for the rope to go around the neck, or go around one horn and the nose resulting in what they call a "half head". Once the steer is caught by one of the three legal head catches, the header must dally (wrap the rope around the rubber covered saddle horn) and use his horse to turn the steer to the left. The second is the "heeler", who ropes the steer by its hind feet after the "header" has turned the steer, with a five-second penalty assessed to the end time if only one leg is caught.
