Hopefully I posted this video correctly....

Anyone who has roped will appreciate this.
Also good watching for anyone who hasn't seen a Charro rodeo before.
Not for the weak hearted.

Looks fun :)

I found the title hilarious because I once dated a guy who was Mexican of some sort and he was scared crapless of horses LOL

That's a great find Cowchick! I have some of those on my youtube favorites. Wish I could read Mexican, so I could find all the good ones. I love Mexicans, they're great hands. To me (and this is just my opinion) their version of a reining class is much better than our U.S. shows.

LOL! I have found they are either really handy or really not! Unfortunately, it sounds, like you found one that wasn't....


Just when I start feeling good about my roping I watch this stuff....then I go outside and rope the dummy some more!

Oh yea, that video you posted was awesome. I think they are handy too, they just do thinks a little different. I notice they use their body weight more to cue their horses.

This one time at band camp... I mean southern CA. I went a Mexican's house in Norco. From the front it just looked like a regular crappy house in town, but the back was beautiful. He had a barn way nicer than his house for his Charro horses, a brick yard and a ring. This guy saddled a horse got on showed me what he could do and then let me ride him...it was freakin' awesome.

They most certainly have some mad roping skills! There were a few horses in that vid that I'd not mind having in my pasture either.

I know, it just blows my mind.
Especially when they are standing still heeling a horse from the "wrong" side hauling ass! Then doing the ocean wave, butterfly and back hand front footing a horse, HOLY ****!

I think we'd all be suprised at how many of these handy ropers are landscaping houses on the East coast or picking citrus in Florida and California. I once worked a construction job with a Mexican feller and he came over to my house and saw a rope lying next to a dummy. He ask me about it and I gave him a 15 minute lesson on how to swing and throw a rope that included me missing 3 out of 5 times. He then took the rope from me and proceeded to make some of the most fantastic shots I'd ever seen. He never missed once.

Huh, that's interesting. I've never seen most of that before.

I agree, there are some very nice horses in there.

And !!HOLY CRAP!! to that rope work :shock:.
