Posted by

Trick roping involves the spinning of a lasso or lariat. It is associated with rodeos or wild west shows. The lasso is a well known-tool of American cowboys, who developed rope spinning and throwing skills in using lassos to catch animals. Cowboys developed various tricks to show off their ability with the lasso and demonstrations of these tricks evolved into entertainment and competitions.
