EX­TRA TIP

Spin to Win Rodeo - - Competitive Edge -

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.
