To all you who rope....

How do you dally and what kind of wrap do you use on your horn?

I grew up in a team roping family so I have always had the rubber innertube wraps on my horn; however, I know people who really prefer the mule-hide wraps. I guess the whole 'how do you dally' thing really is just an obvious answer depending on what kind of horn wrap you use. I can usually take 1 wrap with pretty much anything under 500 lbs but I need 2 with something heavier. For a big momma cow, I will usually take 3. I understand that you have to take many more wraps with the mulehide to keep it from slipping, correct?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I normally use rubber horse wraps. They are easier to put on and use and around here easier to find.

As for the daily. I typically dally down. I find you are less likely to get your pinky caught that way and normally 2 wraps.

Agreed with nrhareiner. That's pretty much what I do too. I don't do any competitive roping anymore, but I still take the ol' girl Pretzel out every now and then and practice on the fake cow or a post or somethin' ;)

I use rubber intertube wraps or the precut rubber wraps.
