Big L Rodeo - Northern Ontario 2001 - Virtual Tour
After beginning behind a barrier, the steer wrestler rides along the left side of the running steer. He then slides off his horse, grabbing the steer by the horns. After stopping or turning the steer, the steer wrestler uses leverage, strength and technique to wrestle it to the ground. The clock stops when the steer is lying on its side with all four legs pointing the same direction. The steer is kept in position in preparation for the contestant's dismount by a "Hazer" a helper chosen by the steer wrestler, who often gets a quarter of any prize money.
