The class involves working cattle and ranch roping so that all aspects of preparing the bridle horse-in-the-making are addressed.
Roping part of the class: Buck will be teaching the basic fundamentals of ranch roping. If you do not rope you will still be learning & utilising the horsemanship in holding the herd & working your horse from the instruction of Buck. This is a great opportunity to advance your skills & step out of your comfort zone as great horsemen utilise rope skills daily.
