with Luke Brown

No matter where I plan to throw my rope, I need to ride my horse to the end of the box and let him catch up to the steer with­out read­ing my throw. That means I need to stay ag­gres­sive out of the box while still stay­ing out of my horse’s way{a bal­ance that isn’t al­ways easy to strike. I’ve got to stay off my horse’s face while us­ing my body to drive my horse to the steer, and I’ve got to get my rope up and mov­ing. This al­lows my horse to run for a few strides to help us catch up and set up my throw be­fore I rope.
