Bareback Bronc Riding

Required to ride for eight seconds, the rider grasps a suitcase handle-like rigging made of leather and rawhide. Optimum spurring action begins with the rider laying back on the horse, his heels above the horse's shoulder on the first jump out of the chute. If not in the correct position, the rider is disqualified with a penalty flag thrown by one of the judges. A rider is also disqualified if his free hand touches the animal or rigging.

He pulls his feet, toes turned outward, across the horse's shoulders. The rider is judged on his control during the ride, his spurring technique and the bucking action of the horse.
