On this bonus Roping.com tips episode of “The Short Score,” Jake Barnes discusses how important it is to practice and compete with intent. He also notes that working on yourself and your horses, and using your practice time wisely, leads to success.
“Practice with a purpose, and then when you go compete, compete with a purpose the same way that you practice. Mentally also. You’ve got to mentally be sharp, too, when you go to ropings, and you can’t have fear. The same way when you’re in the practice pen, you’ve got to get yourself in that zone and you’ve got to get a focus.”
