Bare back riding is one of the most challenging and demanding games in a professional rodeo. The Cowboy who take part in this event must stay on the top of the horse back for eight seconds or more with the help of a leather rigging which is much like a handle of a suit case on a strap. This rigging is made to meet the safety specs. of PRCA. This rigging is tied on top of the horse's withers and is secured by a clasp or a clinch. At a rodeo event, when the horse and the rider comes out from the chute, the rider should touch the horse's shoulders with both spurs until the horse's feet come down and touches the ground. This action is called 'Marking out'. This is per rules and if the rider fails to do this, he is disqualified. The rider has to next pull his kneed up and take his spurs up to the horse's shoulders when the horse bucks. Then he makes his legs straight when the horse descends and again gets his spurs up to the horse's shoulders preparing for the next jump.
