This class will work on the versatility, attitude and movement of the rider and horse over obstacles at a walk, trot or canter.
A timed speed and agility event where riders run a cloverleaf pattern around barrels without knocking them over. Fastest time wins.
A timed speed and agility event where riders run the length of 6 poles, turn and weave through twice, then run back to the start/finish line without knocking them over. Fastest time wins.
Chute dogging is a rodeo event related to steer wrestling. However, the competitor starts the event in a roping chute with the steer as opposed to grabbing onto the steer from horseback. The event is designed to give novices a chance to prepare for steer wrestling.
Team Roping is a two-person team that competes to catch a steer for time. The first roper is referred to as the “header” (the person who ropes the front of the steer, around the horns), and the second roper is the “heeler”, who ropes the steer by its hind feet. Fastest time wins.
Bull riding is a rodeo sport that involves a rider getting on a bucking bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal tries to buck off the rider. To receive a score, the rider must stay on top of the bull for eight seconds with the use of one hand gripped on a bull rope tied behind the bull’s forelegs. Touching the bull or themselves with the free hand, or failing to reach the eight-second mark, results in a no-score ride.
Bullfighter: An athlete who protects the bull rider after he dismounts or is bucked off by distracting the bull and directing its attention to the exit gate.
