Bareback Riding

This event is judged according to the performances of both the rider and the bucking horse. It is a single handheld, eight-second ride which starts with the cowboy’s feed held in a position over the break of the horse’s shoulders until the horse’s front feet touch the ground on the first jump out of the chute. The rider earns points maintaining upper body control while moving his feet in a toes-turned-out rhythmic motion in time with the horse’s bucking action.
