Saddle Bronc

Date: June 21 - June 29, 2019
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Model spurring action begins with the rider's feet far forward on the bronc's point of shoulder, sweeping to the back of the saddle, or "cantle," as the horse bucks. The rider then snaps his feet back to the horse's neck a split second before the animal's front feet hit the ground.

Other factors considered in the scoring are the cowboy's control throughout the ride, the length of his spurring stroke and how hard the horse bucks.

Disqualification results if, during the eight seconds ride, the rider touches the animal, himself or his equipment with his free hand, if either foot slips out of a sturrip, if he drops the bronc rein, or if he fails to have his feet in the proper "mark out" position at the beginning of the ride.
