2023 Clovis Rodeo Steer Wrestling Champion

Kalane Anders, 22.2 seconds on four head, $5,210

Originally called “bulldogging,” steer wrestling requires the cowboy to lean from the running horse onto the back of a 600 pound steer, catch it behind the horns, stop the steer’s forward momentum and wrestle it to the ground. The task is complete when the steer is on its side, with the four feet pointing the same direction.

World record: 2.4 seconds, with a barrier (1976)
