Ladies Steer Undecorating

“importance of rider and horse working as a team“

Invented by BPIR Cowgirls

This cowgirl event consists of two participants, the contender and the hazer.

Things to look for:
Similar to steer wrestlin' the hazer is responsible for keeping the steer running on a straight course.

The contender chases, the steer, which is decorated at the shoulder with a ribbon, and reaches, down onto the steer's shoulder while attempting to remove the ribbon.

Once the contender has successfully removed the ribbon, she raises the ribbon high overhead to signal to the judge she is finished. All this happens as fast as the steer can run and requires tight coordination between rider and horse.

The contender with the fastest time is declared the winner.
