Practice Tip

When you practice most kids want to go fast to make sure that they can perform well at a rodeo. That is totally the wrong thing to do.  We have come to the conclusion that if you practice slow and carefully you will perform better at the rodeos. 
When you practice slow and do it perfectly every time you build muscle memory and when you have to do it faster at the rodeo your "muscles will remember what you have practiced  and do it quickly."  I know it sounds really dumb but it works.  If it is goat tying, do it slowly. If you run barrels or poles, walk through the pattern and get in the correct positon as you enter the barrel/pole turn. If you rope, make sure that your elbow, wrists and hands are in the correct positions . PRACTICE PERFECT and the results will show.
