Breakawaying on a Heel Horse
Here's why you should breakaway rope on your heel horse.

Breakaway roping teaches young heel horse prospects to focus on finding the cow. In this video brought to you by Cactus Ropes, Miles Baker explains the benefits of breakawaying on green heel horses to teach them the fundamentals of tracking.

“We’ll breakaway on head horses, heel horses, anything. I’m not worried about what lead he’s in. I’m not worried about anything except finding the cow right out of the chute and going to the cow. Because if they will go to the cow, then we can shape them off of it later and worry about leads and everything else then.”
