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.
Bull riding is a well known wild and exciting event. This rodeo sports involves a rider getting on a large bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal attempts to buck off the rider.
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.
