All Shots in Slow Motion

Roping   and   Clinics   

Basic Swings :

-the sidearm -

Loop angle about 45 degree
-the flat overhead -

-the tip over left shoulder  

     (offside swing  or

       Heeler Swing )

These swings are the foundation of many back- and forward shots for Head or Hip and Heel Shots.  Shots on Heel or Hip are set after animal is roped at the head. For a heel shot, loop must wrap around both hind legs. Hip shots , sometimes also called Hip Hangers, are thrown with a loop settling partly on the hip and a second part standing in front of the hind legs.
