Choosing your kid rope from Coolhorse

Roping a goat using popular kid ropes

There are lots of different “kid” ropes to choose from, so it can be hard to decide which one is right for you or your little one. I am going to tell you some of the differences between the ropes to hopefully help you pick. Poly ropes are used mostly for calf roping, while nylon ropes are used more for team roping. Most of the kid ropes are going to be a blend of the two types with some exceptions. They will also come in a variety of lengths from 17’ to 30’.

How to Keep Your Ropes Fresh with Barry Berg from Cactus Ropes

Barry Berg at Cactus Ropes gives us some tips to help a rope feel fresh longer.

The number one factor is temperature. Heat will give rope rope more rotation to the left. Team ropes also firm up and feel stiffer or harder when they are hot.

Cold has the opposite effect. It will make the eye rotate to the right and soften the rope.

Your best bet is to keep them at room temperature.
