How to Aim a Lariat Rope

When figuring out how to aim a lariat rope, you should start with the basics. Find out the length of your rope, the lay of the lariat, and your rope’s material. Next, set up your target (a post, roping dummy, or box). Then, stand 15-20 feet away from your target. This distance will give you enough room to swing your lariat without any issues. You will then create your loop, twirl it overhead in your dominant hand, and decide when to throw your rope. As with any sport, mastering the art of roping will take time and practice.

What Kind of Rope Do You Use for a Lasso?

You are going to want to use a lariat rope. These types of ropes come in several different sizes, materials, and colors. Most lariat ropes are made of polyester, nylon, hemp, or leather. You can choose the size of your rope depending on your height and skill level.

How to Throw a Rope

Learning how to throw a lasso takes practice and patience, but here are a few simple steps to help you get started. First, make a loop in your lariat and hold it in your dominant hand. Next, move your hand away from the eye of the loop and hold some of the slack so the loop stays open. Hold the rest of the rope coils in your other hand. Then, raise your arm holding the loop overhead, and start twirling your wrist. Twirl the loop fast enough to keep it in the air and control the direction. Lastly, time it up, throw the lariat, fully extending your arm and releasing the loop. Once your rope lands on the target, pull it tight toward your body.
