Descriptions du produit

Ranch roping is at the heart of all ranch work, and unlike the rodeo variation of calf roping, the "vacquero" tradition calls for techniques that result in a skillful and graceful throw and catch. Buck Brannaman, a world-renowned master of the art, describes the essential tools, the partnership between horse and rider (incorporating the Natural Horsemanship approach for which the author is famous), and the mechanics needed to become a successful ranch roper, whether in competition or in actual cattle work. One-hundred full-color photographs of Buck in action enhance the step-by-step methodology that leads to mastering this essential Western skill. Whether you ride or rope or just wish you could, here's a book for everyone who is captivated by Western traditions and contemporary life.

Buck est un "lassoiste" légendaire. Ce livre explique de manière claire la pratique du "roping" telle qu'elle est encore pratiquée aujourd'hui dans les ranches de la région du Grand Bassin.
Les différents "coups" sont bien expliquées. Il y a beaucoup de bons conseils, en particulier, quel type de coup faire selon les circonstances (selon l'endroit d'où arrive la vache, s'il faut attraper la tête ou les pattes, etc...)
ça ne remplace pas la pratique avec un vrai cowboy qui explique tout ça sur le terrain, mais ce livre est une référence très complète que j'ai trouvé très appréciable pour se perfectionner "à la maison". En tout cas, j'ai fais quelques progrès biens réels qui ont "rentabilisé" mon achat!

Great Overview, Tough to Learn With Though 22 juillet 2012
Par John Sensenstein - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was a great little book to give you an overview about roping and working cattle. I've had this book for probably 4 years. I also have the Branaman roping series, and have used them as well. I've even gone so far as to purchase one of Brananman's "horse ropes" with the Branaman Honda and have practiced roping. And while I was never able to get to go to a Branaman roping clinic, I did go to a well known clinician's roping clinic (don't want to say who for fear of causing controversy) in which I audited and he helped me with some issues on my swing and throws. This book is not that great in learning the beginners throws, but it is wonderful in reading about advanced techniques in handling cattle. I would recommend getting the tapes if you are serious about roping. I would also suggest that after you spend a couple months throwing the loop, you should audit a roping clinic (this is ranch roping or "open range roping.") to learn to throw the loop properly. Since I am left handed, I had to learn to throw right handed and since I am ambidexterous, it was not too much of a problem. Be advised, that it will take you literally years of effort to get competent with a rope. Roping is literally like a language--you have to do it in order to learn it. Be aware in both the book and the Beginners tape, throwing the Houlihan is very poorly covered by Branaman and while I was doing it correctly, it sure did not feel that way. Any serious horseman should learn to be very handy with a rope. It is as much a requirement as learing to post in a saddle. I am just sorry that I was not taught this very important lesson of horsemanship at the very beginning. Learning to work a rope does not mean that you have to rope, but you may need it to catch a horse, subdue one or even prevent it from injuring itself. Buy the book to get an overview. Buy the tapes (I bought them at heavy discount--used)to start practicing. I immediately got the "roping bug," (I could hardly put the rope down.) And while I do not consider myself highly skilled, I am competent and really enjoy throwing the "big loops." Take my advice and audit a clinic soon after you start practicing because like Branaman says, doing it wrong means that you create wrong muscle memory which is something that you will ultimately have to unlearn. So doing it right at the beginning is the best way to maximize your effort. You know the old saying--PERFECT PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT THROWS.
While no one asked, and not necessarily part of this book, here are a few tips I wish I would have had that are not covered in the book. 1) Beginners should use a extra soft rope--at minimum a double "x" The Branaman 60 foot Nylon Rope is XXX soft. I used a 35 ft rope on a bucket, but a 45 footer would work better for a man. After a short period of time, you are going to want a longer rope to make longer throws. The 60 footer is too long for most men, and completely inappropriate for women with smaller hands. While I like the Branaman Honda, they are "touchy" and one is enough for me. 2) Have a good roper watch you early and give you pointers to make sure your technique is correct. Team Ropers don't throw big loop style, but they know how to pitch a rope...if you can't get a Big Loop Guy, ask a Team Roper to watch you to make sure you are developing correct muscle memory skill. 3) Practice on a bucket and actually watch the rope. What you are looking for is to keep you loop open and make sure that the rope lands on the bucket flat and in a perfect circle around the bucket--anything less than perfectly round is unacceptable. 4) Don't rope a dummy until all your bucket shots are perect "10s" out of 10s because when you try to rope your dummy, you're more interested in catching the dummy as opposed to developing good technique. 5) It is much more important to know why you missed at the beginning than catching the object. This will save you 50% of your throws. I don't mind missing, but I get really mad at myself when I don't know why I did not make the shot--that is both intolerable and unacceptable. 6)If you are going to make a dummy, don't buy a calf head, but rather a steers head. With a steer's head you'll make much more "one horn catches" but that will really pay off when you get on your horse. It is much harder at the beginning to catch a steer head, but it significantly decreases your learning curve--you become a better roper faster. (7)If you want to be a good stockman, never allow the loop to hit the cow. Always make sure the loop goes around the animal's head like a halo--hitting the cow with the loop accidentally makes the cow feel like it is being punished--that means that it will try harder to stay away from you in the future.

Throwing Loops 19 août 2009

An excellent book everyone interested in any kind of western horsemanship or roping. I love "how to" books like this, especially with such quality writing and pictures. There are many "tidbits" of information throughout. I definitely recommend this book!

I wasn't that impressed. And that's from someone who's seen Buck on DVDs and is mesmerized by the guy's talent. I remain a huge fan of Mr. Brannaman, but as for learning to rope, I just don't think this book gets you anywhere. To be fair, I've concluded that learning to rope is really a video, not print medium. I have other roping books and they all suffer. You just can't see enough from a still photo, and describing the wrist, elbow actions etc can't fully describe what needs to be done. If you're a die hard Buck fan in general, this book will have general appeal, but specifically for roping, I can only give it 2 starts.

rope trick 1 octobre 2009
Par kchan - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
nice over view of the history of roping/cow hand work. though I only bought it because my western addled brain couldn't remember how to properly build and swing the rope. nice pictures, nice heavy book. Any one with a interest in the history of the west, this book would be good, because its a basic cowboy foundation and well, cowboys are part of the history of the west.
