Before discussing more about the best goat tying dummy, let us first explain what is ‘goat tying’. Goat tying is a rodeo event generally seen in youth (high school and college rodeos), in which the participant rides to a tethered goat, dismounts, catches, throws, and ties any three of its legs together.
The goat must stay tied for 6 seconds after that contestant has backed away from the animal. The rider receives no score, if the goat becomes untied before six seconds have passed.
A participant may be disqualified for undue roughness while handling the goat, touching the goat after the tie, or after signaling completion of the tie, or the contestant’s horse coming in contact with the goat or tether while the contestant has control of the horse.
