Bareback Riding

Like saddle bronc riding, the first thing a bareback rider has to do is “mark out” the horse. Both spurs must touch the horse above the point of its shoulders when it makes its first jump from the chute. If the rider misses that mark—he’s disqualified. No saddle, no stirrups — just cowboy with a leather rigging in one hand and eight seconds of wild action.
