Dallying Exercise with Scott Grosskopf


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 7

They say you’re only as good as your habits. Montana horseman Scott Grosskopf shows us several exercises he practices on a regular basis to develop and maintain safe habits for roping and dallying.

Prevention is the best cure so be aware of your gear and learn how to keep track of your rope. A kink in your coil can become a big issue when you’re slipping rope. Exaggerating these moves in the beginning will also help build proper muscle memory so that you’ll have good form when things speed up. You won’t need cattle for these drills, but feel free to wrangle the help of a fellow cowboy to help you practice.
