If you know me, you know I’m not a coordinated individual.
Graceful I am not.
I can push around 1,000 pound animals without much fuss, but fine motor skills, hand eye coordination…not so much.
I trip over things that aren’t there. Especially when I’m flustered.
So roping horseback has never been a feasible goal for me. I have never even been able to master throwing a rope from the ground with a stationary dummy.
Paul walked me through some tips and tricks, critiqued my form, offered suggestions. After slowing down my throw, and focusing on hand placement and release, I actually began to catch the dummy!
It’s still not pretty, but progress was made today. Dare I say it – I actually had fun!
