So I grew up at the local ropins, with both my dad and uncle being successful ropers. Both of them have been out of the sport for years now, as "life got in the way." Lately I have taken up the sport, but When I go to the bigger shows to watch, all of the horses have baby powder (I think that's what it is). This doesn't seem to happen at the small, po-dunk shows here locally that I compete at, but they're all over at big shows. I guess I really don't udnerstand the need for it, anyone care to enlighten me maybe? Haha Thanks!
