Imitating ranching chores of the Old West, cowboys and cowgirls demonstrate riding and roping feats in a competition called a rodeo. Fleeing calves and steers are roped, tied, and sometimes even wrestled to the ground. In other events, wild bucking horses and bulls try to fling their riders to the dirt.
