  • Double Mugging

    Double Mugging is an event where one cowboy ropes a steer and another cowboy on the ground attempts to bull dog the animal to the ground. The cowboy on the horse dismounts and helps the other cowboy. The object is to get the steer to the ground and tied as fast as possible. Many rodeo fans come just to watch the Double Mugging.

    In this event, a sheep is held still, either in a small chute or by an adult handler while a child is placed on top in a riding position. Once the child is seated atop the sheep, the sheep is released and usually starts to run in an attempt to get the child off.

20th annual Panaewa Stampede Rodeo

HILO, Hawaii: This weekend’s wet weather couldn’t put a stop to the Panaewa Stampede Rodeo.

Sure, the mud was a little deeper, making it a little more treacherous to move around the Panaewa Equestrian Center here on Sunday.

But when you’re at a rodeo, a treacherous path is a relative concept.

For the 20th year, the Hawaii Horse Owners Association put on two days of roping, barrels, broncs, double mugging and Po’o Wai U. Rodeo Clown JJ Harrison returned this year to keep the spectators entertained during the down time in the program.

Our cameras were there to capture the final events of the 2012 rodeo… the hard nosed tradition of bull riding.

On Sunday, paniolo after paniolo gave the bucking beast a try, in an attempt to stay on for the required 8 seconds in order to score… but ride after ride, the island’s cowboys were unceremoniously thrown into the mud.

Just when it looked like there would be no qualifying ride the entire weekend, Dusty Miranda lowered into the chute, on top of “Hijack”, an ornery bull who had never before been ridden.
