I feel really lame for not knowing this, but I show on saturday in a working rancher class and I forgot to check on the "proper" way to hold my rope. The pattern states to enter at the lope with your loop built, and coils stored under your arm. Stop, perform a right rollback, then form a large fast circle while swinging the rope. Throw rope while in motion, stop, dally, and secure it to the saddle.
My lame question is how do I "properly" hold the coils under my arm? I'm assuming I'm holding them in my left arm so I don't send them flying ? Whenever I've roped or practiced the pattern before I never paid a lot of attention to just how I was doing it or whether it was the "right" way. Help would be appreciated.
