This is how you train a roping horse...
Bahaha, I seriously love our horses. Our new barn is awesome because it's a roping barn - the whole facility is designed to be able to herd cows into the outdoor ring and indoor ring, with complete setup for competition plus a bunch of dummies for training. While outside, Shay-la found a rope and decided to try. After about half an hour of figuring it out, she was actually managing to rope the dummy a few times so we decided to try on horseback! These horses have NEVER been roped off, NEVER seen a dummy, never had anything like this done.

As you can see Justus couldn't have cared less. Jynx side stepped the first couple times but managed. ZIERRA made me laugh - she was TERRIFIED of the dummies, TERRIFIED of Shay-la throwing the rope, TERRIFIED of being TERRIFIED of everything that moved. And when Shay-la finally climbs on her, stands like a rock for pretty much the entire experience. You gotta love those crazy Arabs!

So enjoy our little endeavor into roping! I would LOVE to actually try this on Jynx.

The very first try!

Whoops, got the horn!


Jynxy's turn!

Zierra's is coming, taking forever to upload!

They do heading and heeling and have their own mini herd of steers and I want so badly to try it out! As if we don't dabble in enough already LOL
