Team roping with cowboy
Team roping originated in the work of cowboys. In order to check their cattle for possible injuries or illnesses, they had to catch them. Often, it took two cowboys to catch larger animals. This gave rise to the rodeo event. In the event, the first cowboy or cowgirl throws a lasso over the horns or neck of the calf. The second cowboy or cowgirl throws a lasso around its hind legs. The cowboys/cowgirls do all this from horseback. They have to throw the rope with great accuracy and need to be excellent riders. All of the Schleich figurines are meticulously hand-painted and equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for highest quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations. Hosrse approximately 11 cm tall.
