Developed in 1985 by the Lazy E Arena near Guthrie, Okla., the annual Timed Event Championship is a rugged test of the top all-around timed-event cowboys in the world.
This year’s championship is scheduled for March 4-6 and will feature, as always, 20 excellent competitors. It’s a showcase of folks who can rope anything and wrestle steers; even guys who can’t bulldog sure give it a shot.
It’s one heck of a show, and the contestants must rope a calf, head, heel, rope and tie down a steer and wrestle a steer, and they must do it in each of the five go-rounds over three days.
It’s unique, mystical and grueling, and only the best need apply.
