Smile Goat Tying

Hello everyone I'm new here and I'm hopeing I can get some good advise from everyone on here!!!! So about goat tying I barrel race and pole bend and I am wanting to try goat tying So I have been practicing jumping off of him i started at a trot and im working my way up there. The problem is my mom and dad won't let me get goats ( we don't have room for them) and I don't have a tye to tie them down so I thought if you all new of anything I could practice on besides my brother (lol) that would be great :) I have been using a piece of rope when i practice on my brother lol.

I used to practice tying sitting on the edge of my bed or in a chair on my leg propped up on my opposite knee...does that make sense? Also I have seen in NRS they have a goat tying dummy

You could use a calf roping dummy, or a goat one. It's all the same muscle memory. As for the horse, you gotta make sure he keeps going after you bail off. Also, to get the best time, you gotta be able to bail off going pretty fast, and to avoid injury, I'd learn how to do that properly (I tore my ACL, so I'm very wary about knee stressing situations)

Call me crazy but if my daughter was doing it I'd make her slide that horse to a stop and step off like a calf roper. Even if she didn't win she'd darn sure have a nice horse and it might save her from a bad injury.

I have friends who've made it to the High school rodeo finals in Gallop, New Mexico. And how? They weren't afraid of the ground. They'd come in the arena, spurring hard with the outside foot out of the stirrup and as the horse came closer to the goat, they'd swing that leg over and jump down and take off for the goat. If you want to win, you gotta have the guts and coordination to jump off a moving horse.
