Steer wrestling...lol
 
hey guys, i was just curious if there was anywhere in the world that let girls steer wrestle,:D i think they let girls do it here in NM but we have to be in our own group and there are never enough girls that want to do it and they wont let us compete with the boys which is lame,:roll: girls are allowed to bull ride and compete with the men, i think...im pretty sure though lol
thanks!!

I don't see why girls couldn't compete in steer wrestling. Heck, that beats barrel racing by alot! Maybe you could try searching that on google. It would be interesting to see if rodeos do allow girls to steer wrestle.

I don't know, I'm not that far from you. If a girl was big enough to handle the steer, I don't see why she couldn't compete against the boys. The only problem is, most girls are not big enough to overpower some of the bigger steers.

I live in Florida and I steer wrestle a few times a week but only at our practice pen, my cousin competes in it in the Georgia Florida Youth Rodeo Association and the Florida High School Association but he is a boy. I am only 5'0" but I can hold my own with the boys and thats using the same steers as them, I think most of it is just upper-body strength but then again I can bench 235lbs LOL...Ya I wish girls could compete somewhere!

Here in AUS girls can't. We can only run barrels, do steer undercorating, heading or heeling. Oh and the poddy calf ride/steer ride, but no bulls or broncs. Not very fair!
