Tie Down Roping

This is a beautiful display of teamwork between a cowboy and his horse. Luck of the draw comes into play, too. A spirited calf can thwart the best cowboys. After a head start, the mounted cowboy gives chase, ropes the calf, jumps off his horse and ties any three of the animal’s legs together. When he completes his tie, he remounts and allows the rope to go slack. If the calf kicks free within six seconds, the roper is disqualified.
