which is looped around the horns of the steer that
is in the chute. The other team member stands 40
feet from the chute holding a 24-inch long ribbon.
When the chute gate opens, the first team must
bring the steer out and across the 10-foot line. The
second team member then tries to tie the ribbon
on the steer's tail while the first team member
tries to remove the rope from the steer's horns.
When the ribbon is on the tail and the loop is off
the horns, the team member who tied on the rib-
bon must tag the timer.
• Mounted Break-Away Roping: The roper is
mounted on horseback with one end of his or her
rope tied to the saddle horn by a piece of string.
When the calf is released from the chute, the roper
follows to try and rope the calf. When the loop is
thrown, it must pass completely over the call ''?
head. As the calf pulls away from the rider and
horse, the rope grows taut and will break away
from the saddle horn.
• Team Roping: The team consists of two rop-
ers mounted on separate horses. One roper is
called the "header" and his or her responsibility
is to rope the steer by the horns while the team-
mate, called the "heeler," must get the rope
around the steer's back legs, or heels. When the
header makes the catch, he or she must wind the
rope around the saddle horn, called "dallying
off," turning the steer away from himself thus
causing the steer's heels to fly in the air for the
heeler's loop to catch. When both ropers have
been successful in their tasks, they must turn their
horses to face the steer and pull their ropes taut.
• Junior Bull Riding: A junior bull is a young
bull that has not built up the bulk, or testosterone,
of a full-grown bull. The rider has a "bull rope"
wound around the animal just behind the front
legs and then around the rider 's hand; no knots
are allowed. This handhold and the riders legs,
locked like scissors around the animal, are all the
rider has to count on to stay on top. A rider who
is able to spur, or move their legs back and forth
on the animal's sides, will receive a higher score.
The rider must stay on the bull for a designated
length of time to receive a score at all.
• Bareback Bronc Riding: A specially de-
signed "bareback riggin" with a built-in hand-
hold is tied onto the horse. The rider climbs on
the horse's back in the chute, and settles him or
herself before the chute gate is opened. When the
gate is opened, the rider has to start the ride with
both of his or her feet extended forward over the
horse's shoulders and, on the first leap out
