Sheridan Elk's Youth Rodeo 2013 - Monkey on a Rope

one little monkey hanging on a rope...

Participants pay to play this non-rodeo event, a time-filler as rodeo scores are being tallied and winners are being determined.

The object of the game is for two riders to come out on horseback, one of which has to catch a rope and dangle while his/her partner takes the horse around a barrel and then back to pick them up again.

Needless to say this combination of maneuvers leaves much room for error - and comedy.

young or old, girls or boys can all try their skills at monkey on a rope
