Cowgirls Breakaway Roping
The ladies must follow the same rules as the cowboys by starting behind a string barrier,
allowing the calf a head start. If the cowgirl leaves the box too early and breaks the string, she is given a 10-second penalty . The cowgirl’s rope is tied to her saddle horn with a cotton string. The time is stopped when the rope breaks away from the saddle after she has roped her calf.
