The Cowboy Protection Match is a platform for rodeo bullfighters to showcase their skills at protecting the bull riders, once they have been thrown from the bull or have dismounted. Teams are scored on how well they work together, how they execute the fundamentals of cowboy protection, and how they handle the different situations that may arise.
Teams consist of two rodeo bullfighters. The teammates have typically worked together before and should be able to know where their partner is or will be when all the action happens.
