Recently I taught a school in Quincy, Washington and the goal for some of the students was to rope faster. As we watched the video, I explained there are many steps involved to roping faster. Many people want to be able to swing their rope faster and be able to rope faster… but if you cannot ride your horse across the line correctly it’s extremely difficult.

Recently I’ve purchased a few really nice-looking big and stout head horses. Their owners were not getting along with them because they were ducking hard and felt out of control.

Working with professional ropers is quite different than working with my usual students. Dustin Egusquiza lives fairly close and has been coming over and roping with us. He is completely phenomenal with a rope but wants to work on his horsemanship and how he prepares his horses for jackpots.

Teaching my son to heel has been fun for me because I grew up heeling and I’m able to simplify much of it for him. For me, it’s math equations that determine why people have good days, bad days, or why they get along well with some horses and not others. Growing up, when I got home from school my dad would have three or four heel horses saddled. I roped all day until we were done, cow after cow. And as a kid I won pretty much everything back east..
