Steer Wrestling

This event was originally called “bull dogging” and requires the cowboy to lean from the back of the running horse onto the back of a 600 pound steer, catch it behind the horns, stop the steer’s forward momentum, and wrestle it to the ground with all four of the steers legs and head pointing the same direction. The steer wrestler is assisted by the hazer, who rides along the steer’s right to keep the animal running straight.
