Calf Roping: One horse and Rider combination in a timed event. Rider must wait in a chute until the calf is released and has passed a start line before the Horse/Rider can leave the chute. The Rider lassos the calf, and as the Rider is dismounting the horse is bringing tension on the rope so the Rider can grab the calf and flip the calf onto it's side and then rope three of the legs together. The calf's legs must remain tied for the count of 6 seconds after the Rider has let go of the calf while still on the ground. The fastest time wins.
