Wild horse racing is a rodeo sport that involves controlling and racing an untamed horse. Typically, there are ten teams of three participants each. Each team must first place a halter on their assigned horse before the chutes open. Once the gates are open, two of the team members attempt to hold the untamed horse in place by pulling a rope or wrestling with the horse while the third places the saddle on the horse and rides it across a finish line. The team whose horse is first to cross the finish line is the winner. Typically, the wild horses attempt to resist efforts to control and ride them - as such, this sport can be dangerous to participants.
