Pole Bending

Pole bending is a competition in rodeo. The cowgirls ride quickly around the poles, and the one with the least time win. In a race, every time a horse runs in front of a pole, it must brake sharply, slows down around the pole, and then speeds up to the next pole. This is similar to Formula One racing. The whole race is full of adventure and excitement. especially around the turns.
