Chase Tryan – Rhythm of The Run

Chase Tryan - Rhythm of Run

Chase Tryan talks about how incorrect position can effect his timing or “rhythm” of his run.

Chase Tryan:
If my corner is off, the rhythm of the run turns off. If I get too tight to the steer and I’m too close from the corner I need to throw, I have to pull off, which creates separation. If I do that, then I have to try to beat the steer and a lot of times my horse’s feet stop moving. I’ll deliver my rope, steer’s out away from me and I’ll hurry my slack and that causes for a lot of slip legs.

Same thing too far away. If the steer turns and I need to be there, I have to gas them. Well, it changes the speed to where the horse is going two times as fast as the steer. Well, if I throw my rope, it’s going to push my heel forward in front of the legs and a lot of times I’ll throw it either high on the right or you’ll set it in and push in front of both feet and you’ll end up missing the steer.

Through the turn, once I get my distance right, I would like to be matching the same speed as the steer. Then as I go to throw, I want my horse to come off it a little bit. So that would create, I throw my rope and the steer would go forward away from me and it help sets my bottom down. I don’t want to come through the corner and my horse be going faster than the steer or me get too tight and me pull and it creates the steer getting away from me too fast, because I feel like that’s when things happen. That’s when, if I’m too close and I pull, I’ll lean back and my delivery will come back here.

Or if I have to reach, I’ll really reach out for him, but by the time I get right here, my horse reacts to that and he goes forward. So then I’m delivering right here, but then the steer ends up right here by the time I bring my rope to him. If I can borderline match the speed of the steer, it should feel like roping the dummy. Like I come in, I’m swinging, when I go to put my rope down, the steer kind of leaves me and my horse, it should just let the loop set up.

Hear What Others Are Saying About X Factor Roping

Brad, Texas

Being able to watch the slow mo videos have really been a blessing for me. It’s helped me learn my delivery for heeling. Along with how and where my horse needs to be. Some nights my girlfriend and I will break down videos to help us out. She has really progressed in breakaway roping because of watching your videos.

Lauren, California

X Factor has completely changed my mindset in my practice, how I compete and shaped a lot of my horsemanship while roping. I have ridden horses, trained, and barrel raced all my life, but within the past 3 years I have started to rope. I had a young horse I knew I couldn't finish in the barrels because she isn't very fast, but would make a great heel horse. So I set off on an adventure of training a rope horse, all while also learning to rope myself! Lucky me, my horse is a natural at reading cattle and watching a corner, but it was still a learning curve. My X Factor membership purchase was a turning point for my positioning, warm up for my heel horse and my body control translating to my horse when delivering. X Factor was also when my "self teaching" of how to heel really took off! Watching videos over and over, taking notes and exploring all of the different pros to learn from was what really helped me start to figure out my swing, timing and delivery.

It has helped my horsemanship out a lot. My favorite part about the site is by far the Facebook coaching group. Ryan Motes series on advancing through the different levels of heeling has helped me the most. My mental game has improved significantly.. And it has changed the way I practice I used to just run steers now I practice to accomplish something.

Daniel, Mississippi

I love X Factor, it has helped me work on everything from dummy work to horsemanship. I’ve roped and been doing something wrong, go home and find my problem on the website. I’ve started roping in the practice pin a lot different where I use to just go make runs I now have a goal on every steer I run. Thank you, keep doing what y’all are doing!!

Blaine, Mississippi

It has help me tremendously with my horsemanship, the way I practice, and also how approach certain situation. My favorite part of the site is all the different categories you can choose from to work on. Love it

Jordynn, Canada

X Factor has helped me probably the most in my horsemanship which is precisely why I was interested in becoming a member to begin with. So mission accomplished. My favourite parts about the site is the horsemanship videos. And the videos of the ropings. I would say the Joseph Harrison and the Ryan Motes videos have helped me the most. Both a great horsemen and I like how they Really break down what they’re doing with their colts I practice completely different than I used to. And with me being a colt starter and rope horse trainer I take a lot from the horse training videos. And really appreciate them being available.
