Bareback Riding — Both the rider and the bucking horse are judged in this event. It is a single-handhold, eight-second ride which starts with the cowboy’s feet held in a position over the break of the horse’s shoulders until the horse’s front feet touch the ground first jump out of the chute. The rider earns points maintaining upper body control while moving his feet in a toes-turned-out rhythmic motion in time with the horse’s bucking action.

2023 Results:
Bareback riding: 1. (tie) Cooper Cooke, on Summit Pro Rodeo's Red Feathers, and Tim O'Connell, on Summit Pro Rodeo's Game Trail, 90 points, $4,079 each; 3. (tie) Richmond Champion and Dean Thompson, 87.5, $2,155 each; 5. Mason Clements, 86.5, $1,077; 6. Keenan Hayes, 86, $770; 7. Lane McGehee, 85.5, $616; 8. (tie) Waylon Bourgeois, Kaycee Feild, Ben Kramer, Orin Larsen and Jess Pope, 84, $92 each.

Steer Wrestling — This event was originally called "bull dogging" and requires the cowboy to lean from the running horse onto the back of a 600 pound steer, catch it behind the horns, stop the steer’s forward momentum and wrestle it to the ground with all four of its legs pointing the same direction to stop the clock. The bulldogger is assisted by the hazer, typically another competitor, who rides along the steer’s right to keep the animal running straight.

2023 Results:
Steer wrestling: 1. (tie) Sam Goings, Kodie Jang, Travis Munro, Dirk Tavenner, Tyler Waguespack and Landris White, 3.7 seconds, $2,644 each; 7. (tie) Kalane Anders, Olin Hannum, Clayton Hass and Marc Joiner, 4.0, $1,322 each.

Saddle Bronc Riding — Known as rodeo’s classic event, saddle bronc riding is judged similarly to bareback riding but there are additional possibilities to being disqualified; that is, losing a stirrup or dropping the thickly braided rein that is attached to the horse’s halter. The cowboy sits on the horse differently due to the saddle and rein, and the spurring motion covers a different area of the horse. Saddle bronc horses are usually several hundred pounds heavier than bareback horses and generally buck in a slower manner.

2023 Results:
Saddle bronc riding: 1. Cole Elshere, 88 points on Kirsten Vold Rodeo Company's Captain Hook, $4,625; 2. Q Taylor, 87.5, $3,546; 3. Damian Brennan, 87, $2,621; 4. (tie) K's Thomson and Cash Wilson, 85, $1,387 each; 6. Jake Finlay, 83.5, $771; 7. Isaac Diaz, 82.5, $617; 8. Ira Dickinson, 80, $462.

Tie Down Roping — Tie down roping is an authentic ranch skill that originated from working cowboys. Once the calf has been roped, the cowboy dismounts and runs down the length of the rope to the calf. When the calf is on the ground, the cowboy ties three legs together with a six-foot pigging string. Calves are given a head start, and if the cowboy’s horse leaves the box too soon, a barrier breaks and a 10-second penalty is added to the roper’s time. In all of the timed events, a fraction of a second can make the difference between winning and losing.

2023 Results:
Tie-down roping: 1. Shane Hanchey, 8.1 seconds, $4,653; 2. Ty Harris, 8.5, $4,033; 3. Zack Jongbloed, 8.8, $3,722; 4. Chance Thiessen, 8.9, $3,102; 5. Haven Meged, 9.0, $2,792; 6. Jerry Adamson, 9.1, $2,482; 7. (tie) Trevor Hale and Michael Otero, 9.3, $2,016 each; 9. Neil Dove, 9.4, $1,551; 10. (tie) John Douch, Quade Hiatt, Chance Oftedahl and Reese Riemer, 9.5, $969 each; 14. Cash Hooper, 9.6, $465; 15. (tie) Darnell Johnson and Reid Zapalac, 9.8, $155 each.

Women’s Barrel Racing — This event is a horse race with turns. The cowgirl’s time begins as she rides her horse across the starting line in the arena. She makes a run around three upright barrels, which are in a cloverleaf pattern, and back to the starting line where the clock stops. Tipping a barrel is permitted, but if it is knocked to the ground, a five-second penalty is added to her time.

2023 Results:
Barrel racing: 1. Brittany Pozzi Tonozzi, 17.12 seconds, $5,073; 2. Wenda Johnson, 17.14, $4,059; 3. Ilyssa Riley, 17.18, $3,298; 4. Sydni Blanchard, 17.28, $2,537; 5. Katie Halbert, 17.42, $2,029; 6. Tara Carr, 17.44, $1,522; 7. Emery Mask, 17.46, $1,268; 8. (tie) Andrea Busby and Amanda Welsh, 17.49, $1,078 each; 10. Jamie Olsen, 17.50, $888; 11. Timber Allenbrand, 17.51, $761; 12. Kelly Yates, 17.57, $634; 13. Bryana Lehrmann, 17.58, $507; 14. Jenna Pruitt, 17.61, $380; 15. (tie) Taryn Boxleitner and Victoria Procter, 17.65, $127 each.

Team Roping — Team roping is the only rodeo event that features two contestants. The team is made up of a header and a heeler. The header ropes the horns, then dallies or wraps his rope around his saddle horn and turns the steer to the left for the other cowboy who ropes the heels. The heeler must throw a loop with precision timing to catch both of the steer’s hind legs; only catching one leg results in a five second penalty. The time clock stops once both ropers have made a catch and brought the animals to a stop, facing each other.

2023 Results:
Team roping: 1. Tanner James/Wyatt Cox, 4.2 seconds, $4,668 each; 2. Lightning Aguilera/Jared Fillmore, 4.3, $4,119; 3. (tie) Erich Rogers/Paul Eaves, Jake Smith/Douglas Rich and Tanner Tomlinson/Patrick Smith, 4.5, $3,021 each; 6. (tie) Coy Rahlmann/Jonathan Torres, Marcus Theriot/Cole Curry and Paul David Tierney/Tanner Braden, 4.6, $1,922 each; 9. (tie) Brenten Hall/Paden Bray and Jon Peterson/Trae Smith, 5.1, $1,236 each; 11. Austin Crist/Jesse Jolly, 5.3, $824; 12. Jake Orman/Corey Hendrick, 5.5, $549.

Bull Riding — Bull riders, who might not weigh more than 150 pounds, place a flat braided rope around a bull that weighs almost 2000 pounds. The bull rope is placed around the animal, just behind its shoulders. It is then looped and threaded through itself and the cowboy wraps it around his riding hand with only his grip holding him in place. The rider relies on balance and leg strength to make the eight-second buzzer. Look for bull riders to sit up close to their bull ropes and to turn their toes out because rides are judged on the riding style of the competitor and the bucking ability of the bull.

2023 Results:
Bull riding: * 1. Ernie Courson Jr, 86.5 points on Summit Pro Rodeo's Fireman, $5,878; 2. Clayton Sellars, 85, $4,694; 3. Josh Frost, 76, $3,679; 4. T Parker, 73, $2,664; no other qualified rides. *(all totals include ground money).
