63rd Annual Lea Park Pro Rodeo

June 9th, 10th, and 11th, 2017
(10 miles north of Marwayne)

Steer Wrestling

Timing, coordination and strength are prerequisites for a steer wrestler. To begin with, he must remain behind the barrier, which is a rope stretched across the front of the starting box, until the steer crosses the scoreline, giving it a headstart. If the cowboy breaks the barrier, 10 seconds are added to his time. The horse is trained to run beside the steer and then run on by as the steer wrestler reaches for his steer. The steer wrestler catches the right horn in the crook of his right arm and then must hit the ground with his legs extended forward in order to bring the steer to a halt. Using his left hand as leverage under the steer’s jaw, he throws the steer off balance and wrestles it to the ground. The steer must be flat on its side with all four legs extended before the official time is taken. Also, the steer must be on its feet before being wrestled. The event requires an extra horse ridden by a hazer whose job is to keep the steer running as straight as possible. Control and speed are required from both horses as they wait for their steer to start and then cover about 150 feet in four seconds from a standing start.
