better is best." - Tim Duncan
Better Basics Goat Tying Clinics are
designed to improve on each student's skill and technique for faster,
more consistent and competitive times in the practice pen and rodeo
Clinics are structured to simplify each element of the
run to create positive muscle memory. Skills are added together with the
progression of techniques for practice runs on the ground and off the horse.
Games are played for competitive settings and development of speed. The
importance of physical conditioning and a positive mental attitude is
emphasized throughout the clinic. Students will be continually
challenged as their skill level progress.
