The quicker, the better, in “team roping”, a rodeo event that has pairs of cowboys or cowgirls attempt to catch a calf from horseback. To keep cattle healthy, they often need to be checked for illness or injury. In the field, it might take two cowboys to catch a larger animal. In the rodeo event, the first cowboy or cowgirl throws a lasso around the neck or horns of the calf. The second cowboy or cowgirl throws a lasso around the hind legs. It takes great skill as a rider and throwing accuracy to win!
