  • Barrel Racing - Barrel racing requires the rider and the horse to work closely together. The event shows how well the horse can maneuver and how well the rider can guide their horse. The outcome depends on how well the two work together and the experience and effort they have put into their training. Barrel racing may look easy, but success depends on lots of training and practice between horse and rider.
  • Bull Riding - Bull riding is fun and entertaining to watch. There is only a rope wrapped around the hand to hold on to. You can not touch the bull or anything with your free hand. The time to make is a full 8 seconds. Some get thrown off fairly soon while some can stay on the 8 seconds.
  • Calf Roping - Compete to see who can lasso a calf and tie it up in the least amount of time. As the calves are released into the arena, the contestant, on horseback, catches the calf as quickly as he can.
  • Chute Dogging – Related to steer wrestling where the steer used weighs between 400 and 500 lbs. However, the contestant begins the event in a chute with the steer instead of on horseback. After the chute opens, the contestant must bring the steer to a line ten feet from the chute and wrestle (or “dog”) the steer to the ground.
