Ranch roping is nearly extinct. It is an art that few know anymore. Once a way of life for many a cowboy, it is rare to find one who knows how to use a rope while quietly working cows and livestock. The Buck Brannaman clinic coming in March describes the seminar as “As the name implies this class is designed to refine and improve rope skills – for both horse and rider – with regard to ranch related activities with stock from horseback. This class is not about timed event roping; rather it is about perfecting a variety of roping shots as well as proper positioning of the horse. Aspects of working cattle outside as well as arena roping are practiced with the ultimate intent of creating a calm and skilled approach to handling stock with a rope. Rider’s relative adeptness with a rope is a plus, but not required.” If you want a chance to see how it’s done, here’s your chance.
