Smile untrained horse

Hi I have a 6 year old tennessee walker paint orse. I use him for deer and elk hunting, therefore he is normally in awesome shape and is use to packing out meat. The problem I have is I want to start roping calves on him with a friend of mine and I want to know a few tricks on how to get him started right. I am left handed when I rope so is that ok?? Or do I have to change to rope right haded?

Thanks for the advice

There are left handed ropers, but it depends on if your heading or heeling. Heeling would be easy left handed, but if your calf roping then you might have to learn right handed. As far as trainin you horse, you start by getting your horse to trail cattle. Put your horse in the exact spot you need to be to through your loop and follow the calf/steer or whatever every where it goes, keeping him in the spot you need to be to through your loop. If you don't have access at home to cattle, go to a local roping, which is a pretty good idea anyway. There are plenty of people there who can help. Good luck!
