A wild ride

The hide race begins with a mounted rider pulling a cow hide attached to a long length of rope. Horse and rider sprint across the arena to a standing teammate who then tries to grab the rope and jump on the hide as quickly and smoothly as possible. Then the event becomes a mad dash for the finish line as the dragged member of the team clings to the hide. While certainly exciting and possessing the potential for some spectacular wipe-outs, the hide races are simply a warm-up for what may be the most dangerous event at the Centennial Round-Up, throwback or not.
