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-colour 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 Brannaman is a famed horse gentler—the inspiration for the book and film The Horse Whisperer—whose approach to horses and their owners has inspired and revolutionized the equestrian world.
