Cowboy boots most likely, as it is a rodeo event.

You have to jump off, land without falling, run and brace yourself to throw the goat. I'd suggest something with ankle support and a low flat heel.

You want them to really fit well so they aren't sloppy and cause you to run slower or possibly lose one. Wether you go with a leather sole or crepe sole is a personal preference. Some say a leather sole slips from the stirrup easier, but others say the crepe sole is more comfortable to run in. I have worn crepe soles for the last 12 years or so and my feet love them so much more than a leather sole. I have also not found them to be any more difficult to slide from a stirrup, but brands can differ.

I would also suggest if you are a beginning goat tyer that you may want to consider working with your horse to come up much closer to the stake before stopping/ backing and *staying* there like a calf horse would. This will save your knees a ton and prevent falls from tripping while dismounting a running horse.

It's a rodeo event usually for the youngsters. They ride their horse out of a chute and race down to a goat that is tied on a tether. They dismount, "run" down the tether, grab the goat, and tie it off (like in calf roping).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Riders race down, scare the crap out of a young goat that thinks it's going to get run over by either a horse or someone running at it then gets flopped on it's side to be tethered.
