What is Breakaway roping?

Breakaway Roping is a version of roping in which the competitor ropes a calf but does not throw or tie the calf. The competitor, using a regulation roping loop, ties it to the saddle horn by a piece of string. The rope is secured to the horn in such a manner as to immediately release from the horn when the calf reaches the end of the rope. 

The competitor stands next to the calf chute in a box with a spring-loaded barrier across it. When the calf is released from the chute the barrier breaks and time starts. The roper has a maximum of two loops and 60 seconds to successfully rope the calf with a neck catch. An official rules on the legality of a catch and the time stops when the flagger drops the flag. 

Breakaway Roping is an exciting, fast-paced event with top times having been recorded under two seconds!
