Breaking in a New Rodeo Rope
How flexible you want your new rodeo rope to be will depend on how you plan to use it. For example, a head rope should be stiff enough to catch an animal, while a heel rope should be flexible enough to throw between the ground and the animal's feet.
Once you know how flexible you want your lasso rope to be, the next step is to give your rope a few practice throws at a dummy or fence post to see how much you need to work it. To increase its flexibility, attach one end of your cowboy rope to your saddle horn and the other to a post. Back up your horse until the rope is taut and keep it there for a few minutes. Test the rope to see if it's as flexible as you want it to be, and repeat this step as necessary until you get the flexibility you want.
As a final step, coat your rope in baby powder. Be sure to rub it into all the crevices of your roping ropes to keep them slick and enhance their performance.
