Bronco Tag

Game Description: 
An active, and country themed twist on hot-dog tag.
The Ranch Hand is trying to catch the Outlaw.
Game Rules: 
1 child is the “Outlaw,” and another is the “Ranch Hand,” while the rest of the children are “Partners.” One Partner stands being the other Partner holding onto the front Partner’s waist with their hands. The two Partners form a pair of wild Broncos. The Outlaw tries to tag the Ranch Hand. If the Ranch Hand can grab hold of the Waist of the back Broncos, they are safe and can’t get tagged by the Outlaw. The player who is on the front of that threesome now becomes the Ranch Hand and must run and be chased by the Outlaw. If the Outlaw tags the Ranch Hand, the players switch roles. The more the Broncos try to avoid the Ranch and linking on, the more action is involved.
Saftey Considerations: 
Remind players of respectful touching.
Progression (optional): 
Choose 2 Outlaws and 2 Ranch Hands. Different locomotion (hopping, skipping, galloping, jumping).
