Warm Up for the Branding with an Imaginary Cow with Scott Grosskopf


Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 17

Not everyone has access to cattle at all times. Scott Grosskopf demonstrates how he warms his horse up, trotting circles and getting control of the shoulders. He also offers some thoughts on how you might warm your horse up to go to a branding, or do a days work with cattle. By using an imaginary cow that needs to be moved or roped Scott can give purpose to his ride and be ready to rope when he does get the opportunity to brand.

The original length of this lesson is 19 minutes 13 seconds
