People say don’t lean. But for me, sitting straight up is so hard. If I’m sitting straight up, I have problems getting my loop to the feet. My upper body is always bent toward the steer, riding my horse and swinging my rope. I should be leaning forward in an athletic position to get the rope to the right spot. When I was a kid, people always told me to stop leaning, but today, the best guys in the world are leaning when they throw to help their loops reach the steer.
