This Smarty Drill Will Help You Master Staying Above the Horns

Smarty Pro Rhen Richard demonstrates the header’s ideal swing on the Smarty Sidekick.

“There’s a lot of different styles out there and the one thing I tell people at schools or lessons is that my way is probably not the only way, but you’re gonna be able to take some things that I do and apply it to your game and it’s gonna help you.”

“My swing is going to have natural bottom in it, but I want to stay up over the top of the horns all the time. I feel like that does a few things, not only for the roping part, but my horse.”
