Bareback bronc riding is one of the most physically demanding events in rodeo and has a high injury rate.
Holding onto a leather rigging with one hand and using the other (free hand) to balance with, the cowboy spurs
in a stylized manner for 8 seconds. The bronc rider is judged on control and spurring technique, and the bronc
is judged on power, speed, and agility. These two scores are added together to make the total, with the highest
possible score being 100 points.
