You have to be a little crazy to do this. Steer Wrestling is for the "big boys" of rodeo. These are linebacker sized cowboys that jump from horses running at top speed and grab the horns of 300 pound animals to drag them to a stop and then flip the steer on its side. As you can imagine, steer wrestlers have more than their share of knee injuries.

Thanks, Sebastian! This was taken at the Cinch Shootout at Cheyenne Frontier Days. The Shootout is an invitation only event where top cowboys go against top stock in a winner take all format. This is a big and fast steer that ran farther than usual down the arena before the cowboy could catch up with him.
