Team Roping is unique in the fact that it has two cowboys competing together for a shared time. The first cowboy, known as the header, must first rope the steer either by the horns, around its neck or "half-head" which is around one horn and the neck. After this he turns the steer so the second cowboy, known as the heeler, can catch the feet. If he is only able to catch one foot, then they receive a five second penalty. Time stops once the two riders are facing each other.
