Training a Head Horse

Not everybody in the industry can afford to go buy a finished rope horse that’s ready to go to the rodeos. Whether you’re a young kid learning to rope or an older team roper living on a fixed income, you might not be able to go out and buy the best head horse or heel horse on the market. I don’t recommend people trying to learn to rope and training a rope horse at the same time. But if it has to be done, it can be done.
