Take every chance to practice, at least once a day, every day six weeks prior to that first rodeo in the Spring. Daily practices don't have to be an hour long sessions to get something accomplished all the time. Sometimes when we can break down practice into simple one skill drills or combo drills (flanking and tying or working on running into position and flank and tying). By keeping the practices short sometimes, we accomplish more. When working on one skill, perform it correctly several times first and then work on doing it correctly with speed. After several practice sessions of those, move on to three skill drills and then after a few more practices start putting practice runs together on the ground and with your horse. Using a Tuf Kaf Training system, can help you and your horse with these fundamental skills in a shorter period of time.
