Cowboys ride atop a horse that starts from behind a barricade and make a run for it to catch up with the steer. Another cowboy on horseback rides on the opposite side of the steer so that it continues in a direct line.

Once the cowboy catches up, he leans over and takes the steer by the tips of its horns. He then proceeds to twist the head of the steer which in turn makes it become off balance.
