Steer Wrestling at the Rodeo in Poway, Southern California
Kicking up dust: The rodeo is a completely unique experience, and it’s an intriguing view into a completely different culture. Strict rules exist for the safety of horses, calves, bulls and steers. They are the heart and soul of the rodeo, and the cowboys are proud of their animals.
One part of the Rodeo is the Steer Wrestling also known as Bulldogging.
It requires not just strength but also finesse and skill. Speed, timing and leverage are essential. A winning time is usually between 3 to 4 seconds, but these big boys keep getting faster and faster – and although there may be a few broken bones at the end of it, who cares?
