Setting Up the Shot with Ryan Motes
Setting up the shot is basically setting up the timing of your horse’s stop in relation to the delivery of your loop. When it comes to all of the great ropers over the years who’ve had a signature horse of their career, it’s the timing between the way the horse stops and the way the roper delivers the loop that makes the combination work and allows them to win consistently over and over and over. It started years ago with Leo (Camarillo) and Stick. In more recent times, it’s been Kory Koontz and Iceman, Rich (Skelton) and Roany, Allen Bach and Dunny. It was something that was unique to the horse I rode for 12 years, too-Ike. He had a stop that fit my delivery perfectly.
