Lariats have long been a tool of cowboys to rope horses, cattle, and other livestock on a cowboy ranch. At the Rockin’ R Ranch, we’ll “show you the ropes” and teach you some time-proven techniques in roping.
Feel the rough hemp against your palm as you swing the rope and snag your first “calf” head. You’ll want to do it over and over again.
This activity is for younger children up to older adults.
Although you can’t ride one of our real bulls or bucking broncos, you’ll want to hang on tight to our Bucking Barrel as your friends, family, and our staff help you have a wild ride. Fun for young and old alike. As the seconds click away, will you be the one to stay on the longest? Experience the fun of life on a Utah dude ranch.
