This event requires a true partnership with a working horse. The cowboy waits behind a rope barrier. When he gives the nod, the calf is released and gets a 10-ft.head start. The cowboy must quickly rope the calf, dismount on the run to reach it, turn it on its side and tie three of its legs. While the roper makes the tie his horse keeps the rope taut. Time is called when the cowboy throws his hands into the air and remounts his horse.
