Barrel Racing
Barrel racing is where a horse and rider attempt to complete a clover-leaf pattern around preset barrels in the fastest time. In Barrel Racing, the fastest time will win, but precise control is also required. Running past a barrel and off the pattern will result in a "no time" score and disqualification. If a barrel racer or her horse hits a barrel and knocks it over there is a time penalty of five seconds, which usually will result in a time too slow to win.
Bull Riding
Bull riding refers to the sport that involve a rider getting on a large bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal attempts to buck off the rider. In the American tradition the rider must stay atop the bucking bull for eight seconds. The rider tightly fastens one hand to the bull with a long braided rope. It is a risky sport and has been called "the most dangerous eight seconds in sports."
Steer wrestling
Steer wrestling, also known as bulldogging, is where a horse-mounted rider chases a steer, drops from the horse to the steer, then wrestles the steer to the ground by twisting its horns. Typical professional times will be in the range of 3.0 to 10 seconds from the gates opening to the waving of the flag.
Saddle bronc riding
Rodeo’s “classic” event, saddle bronc riding, has roots that run deep in the history of the Old West. Ranch hands would often gather and compete among themselves to see who could display the best style while riding unbroken horses.
