Lets bring back this old tradition!
it is common practice for working cows out west, but not very common on the east coast. We use this practice with both horses and cattle here at Sugaree Ranch. Its all the fun of roping, with more horsemanship and finesse involved than the rodeo style. Its a classic tradition passed on by vaqueros and buckaroos for centuries. Its also practiced by many famous clinicians: Buck Brannaman, Joe Wolter, Martin Black, Bruce Sandifer...the list goes on.
