Position Varies with Steer Speed

When it comes to heeling position, I think it’s sometimes more a rhythm with your horse and the type of cattle you’re roping than anything else. Plus different rodeos and ropings will require different skills. When team roping, I think your distance is an important part of heeling, and to create that distance you have to anticipate what the steer’s going to do-whether he’s going to run fast or slow, right, left or straight.
