This event is the most physically demanding of all the rodeo events, a cowboy must ride a horse with no saddle for eight seconds. This is a judged event the cowboy with the highest score wins.
The most dangerous of all the rodeo events. A rope with a handhold is wrapped around the bull and the cowboy can only hold on with one hand while trying to survive riding the bull for eight seconds. This is a judged event and the highest score wins.
This is the only woman’s event that we currently have at the Strathmore Stampede. In Barrel Racing, cowgirls navigate a course consisting of circling three barrels in a cloverleaf pattern. This is a timed event, so the fastest cowgirl to successfully complete the course wins.
Like Bareback and Bull Riding, this is another event where the cowboy must survive a ride for eight seconds without getting bucked off. This time the horse is saddled. This is a judged event, and the cowboy with the highest score wins.
The objective of this event is simple: wrestle a steer to the ground. Timing, speed, and control are all needed as the steer must be wrestled to the ground in the correct manner. This is a timed event, and the cowboy that can get it done correctly the fastest wins.
This event shares many similarities with Steer Wrestling, except instead of wrestling a steer to the ground, the cowboy must catch up to a cow and tie it up in a certain way. This is a timed event, and the cowboy that can tie the calf in the correct manner the fastest wins.
One person must capture the steer's head with his rope while the other is responsible for tying the steer’s hind legs. This is a timed event, and the team that can perform their duties the fastest wins.
Novice Bareback & Saddle Bronc
Exactly like the Saddle Bronc and Bareback Riding, except the participants in this event are all aged 20 or younger. This is an excellent opportunity to catch some of the next generation of rodeo superstars in action.
