Practicing Your Rope Handling Skills with Scott Grosskopf


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 9

The best safety practice is the practice safety. Scott Grosskopf appears in this segment with his son Sterling to demonstrate how they prepare for a variety of situations that can happen while roping livestock. In these exercises, one rider simulates the cow while the other works on his rope handling skills. In order to stay safe while roping, you’ll have to be confident and efficient at dallying, managing your slack and watching your stock, to name a few. Have your partner start at an appropriate level of difficulty to suit your experience and enjoy the benefits of learning in a controlled environment.
