Goat tying is a rodeo sport that involves quickly dismounting from a horse, catching a goat, and then tying three of its legs together. The participant enters on a horse at a fast speed, and then dismounts from the horse as it slows down. The participant then attempts to grab the goat, turn the goat over while it is on the ground, and tie three legs of its together with a small string. The participant must step back and wait for six seconds before the result is counted. As this is a timed competition, the fastest time wins the competition.
