Steer Wrestling Tip

In Steer Wrestling, it is important to keep your feet in front of you.  As you lean down off your horse onto the steer, be sure to let your horse continue to run by.  This pulls your feet forward and puts them in the right position.  If you pull your feet off, they will be behind you and you risk the possibility of you and the steer going end over end.

Just like in this picture.  You can see his feet are out in front of him as he is getting ready to stop the steer.  

Building your abdominal muscles to be able to hold your feet up is an important part to conditioning for this event.
