Horsemanship Tips for Roping with Martin Black


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 14

It can be easy to lose sight of your horsemanship goals when you’re busy roping cattle. In this video segment, Martin Black offers some tips for improving your roping practice in order to build good habits with your horse. Some of the most common errors made when roping involves the left arm, which is often overlooked as the focus is on the right hand delivering the loop. Discipline yourself to keep your left arm up with the reins higher up on the neck. This not only helps to steer your horse by providing better leverage, but it also puts more room between your coils and saddle horn, giving you plenty of space to dally.
