66th Annual Lea Park Pro Rodeo

(10 miles north of Marwayne)

Bareback Riding

This event is the most physically demanding in rodeo. The cowboy, using only one arm, holds onto the leather handhold of the bareback riggin’, which is made of leather, and is cinched around the horse. The stress on the rider’s arm is intense, absorbing most of the horse’s power. The handhold is snug fitting and customized to the individual’s grip. The rider will be disqualified for failing to keep his spurs over the break of the horse’s shoulder until the first jump out of the chute is complete, for touching the animal or equipment with their free hand, or for getting bucked off before the end of the eight-second ride. Riders try to spur the horse on each jump, reaching as far forward as they can with their feet, then bringing their spurs back toward the riggin’. At the same time, they must keep from being snatched away from the handhold. The higher and wilder they spur, the better they mark.
