The cowboy must ride bareback for eight seconds with one hand gripping a braided rope wrapped around the bull. The rider's free hand must not touch the bull, but foot movement is optional and is rewarded with higher points. At the end of the ride, a mandatory cow bell hanging on the rope causes it to fall free. However, occasionally a rider will be thrown off with his arm tangled in the rope, causing a serious risk of trampling. Rodeo clowns are in close attendance and often risk injury to help a rider in difficulties.
