NO SADDLES NECESSARY: Bareback competition

Bobby Mote is seeking a fifth world title in bareback riding, but faces stiff competition from Kaycee Feild and Will Lowe.

A bareback rider begins his ride with feet placed above the break of the horse’s shoulder. If the cowboy’s feet are not in the correct position when the horse hits the ground on its first jump out of the chute, the cowboy has failed to “mark out” the horse properly, and his ride gets no score.

Throughout the eight-second ride, the cowboy must grasp the rigging with only one hand. He is judged on his control and spurring technique. He is disqualified if he touches his equipment, his body or the animal with his free hand.

The horse’s performance accounts for half the total score.
