Case in Point #2: Steer Wrestling
Ever wanted to jump out of the saddle and wrestle a steer to the ground? The saddle experts do it all the time on their lunch breaks. Ok, maybe not, but our Crates Steer Wrestler would be just the thing they'd use if they did.
As you can see in the video below, a steer wrestler has to be able to smoothly slide sideways out of the saddle, while being able to hang on to the horn at the same time. This model has a flat, low cantle so that the rider's hips have freedom to go sideways, as well as a very sturdy horn for a good grip. The easier the slide, the better the time.
