Poddy Rides is an event for young cowboys aged eight to 13 just starting out in their rodeo careers. Similar to bull riding, the rider is strapped down to the poddy with one hand using a bull rope.
The free hand must be raised at all times without touching the poddy or himself. While not compulsory, the rider may pick up extra points if he spurs.
The young cowboy must stay on the poddy for six seconds.
