About this product
- DescriptionIn this handbook, world champion ropers and professional instructors offer advice and valuable tips on coaching students, from groundwork to preparing for and entering competition. Starting with a thorough introduction to the basics--including rope selection, horses, and rider proficiency--this handbook is the official resource to roping from the United States Team Roping Championships, the governing organization of the sport. With complete information about the rules and regulations of the sport, it illustrates how team roping evolved into a sport when a couple of cowboys turned a common ranching procedure--that grew from the securing a steer for branding or medical issues--into a competition. Covering all the essentials, from rope handling both on and off the horse and the ins and outs of a competition to official rules and evaluating personal runs, this indispensible guidebook is a must-have for anyone interested or involved in team roping.
