The Rodeo: Grabbing The Bull By The Horns!

Steer Wrestling.

  • Steer Wrestling is also known as Bulldogging.
  • It involves grabbing onto the horns of the steer and wrestling it to the ground.
  • This is probably the most dangerous of all the rodeo events.
  • A cowboy bulldogger risks jumping off a running horse head-first and missing the animal.
  • There is also the possibility that the steer could land on top of him, sometimes horns first.
  • The winning cowboy has the fastest time, recorded when all four of the animal’s legs leave the ground.
  • A flag is raised to mark the end of the run.  Yee haw!
