Team roping is just that - a teamed sport between two well-trained, determined cowboys. One cowboy stands on each side of the steer inside the chute, and, as the steer charges forward, the cowboys attempt to stop him. The first cowboy, known as the header, tosses his rope toward the steer's head, with the ultimate goal being to rope the steer around the neck or horns. The heeler throws his rope at the steer's hind legs, hoping to catch both feet in the loop. The header then turns his horse to face the heeler, who stops his horse. The clock stops when the horses are stopped and there is no slack left in the ropes. If the heeler only catches one hind leg, five seconds is added to the team's overall time.
