This video builds on the foundation of The Basics video, demonstrating and explaining many vaquero-style head & heel roping shots (using both a roping dummy and cattle). Running time is approx. 1 hr. 13 min. DVD format.
Reata Roping of the Vaqueros demonstrates and explains the vaquero-style roping techniques developed by the Mexican cowboys (vaqueros), who took these skills northward to the United States. This style emphasizes control, safety, and eloquence, with roping shots for catching livestock in a variety of situations. Alfonso Aguilar spent several years roping both horses and cattle as a charro in Mexico and on ranches in the United States.
