Rodeo At Memorytown
As the legend
goes...Rodeo got itís beginnings when one rancher said he had a
horse who couldn't be rode and another rancher said he had a cowboy
who couldn't be throwed.
Events at Pocono
- Often referred to as the 'Classic event of Rodeo' since this is
the common practice of the American cowboy when he attempted to
break horses for working the range. The cowboy in this event rides
a specially fitted, regulation bronc saddle. He holds onto the 'swells'
of his saddle with his thighs while lifting on a single rein with
one hand to keep him down in the saddle. Aside from getting bucked
off before the eight seconds, a contestant can also be disqualified
for touching the horse or his equipment with his free hand during
his ride. The cowboy gets higher marks for moving his legs from
back to front, keeping in time with the horse. When done perfectly
correct, the rhythm of the cowboy and bucking horse look like poetry
in motion...but when things go bad, cowboys can be launched upwards
of twenty feet! Each competitor climbs onto a horse, which is held
in a small pipe or wooden enclosure called a bucking chute. When
the rider is ready, the gate of the bucking chute is opened and
the horse bursts out and begins to buck. The rider attempts to stay
on the horse for eight seconds without touching the horse with his
free hand. On the first jump out of the chute, the rider must "mark
the horse out." This means he must have the heels of his boots in
contact with the horse above the point of the shoulders before the
horse's front legs hit the ground. A rider that manages to complete
a ride is scored on a scale of 0-50 and the horse is also scored
on a scale of 0-50. Scores in the 80s are very good, and in the
90s, are exceptional. A horse who bucks in a spectacular and effective
manner will score more points than a horse who bucks in a straight
line with no significant changes of direction
- refers to rodeo sports that involve a rider getting on a large
bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal attempts to
buck off the rider. In the American tradition the rider must stay
atop the bucking bull for eight seconds. The rider tightly fastens
one hand to the bull with a long braided rope. It is a risky sport
and has been called "the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.
Barrel Racing Barrel - racing is a rodeo event in which a horse
and rider attempt to complete a clover-leaf pattern around preset
barrels in the fastest time. Though both boys and girls compete
at the youth level and men compete in some amateur venues, in collegiate
and professional ranks, it is primarily a rodeo event for women.
It combines the horse's athletic ability and the horsemanship skills
of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver a horse
through a clover leaf pattern
Team Roping Team roping - is a rodeo event that features a steer,
and two mounted riders. The first roper is referred to as the "header,"
the person who ropes the front of the steer, usually around the
horns, but it is also legal for the rope to go around the neck,
or go around one horn and the nose resulting in what they call a
"half head," the second is the "heeler," who ropes the steer by
its hind feet, with a five second penalty assessed to the end time
if only one leg is caught.
