Many working cowboy ranches embrace the traditions of the Old West Vaqueros. The Cowboy Ranches use the traditional Vaquero horse tack and teach the Vaquero ways of horse training and horsemanship.
In keeping with this traditional Vaquero style- the Get-Down-Rope is becoming popular with not only the old west working cowboy ranches but the casual riders, following the vaquero style.
The "Git Down Rope " is also very popular in the competitive ranch classes at rodeos and horse shows. These horse competitions demand the use of the this rope as well as the bosalito.
The traditional cowboys used the “git” down rope to keep there horse standing still while they “git” down to shut the gate, pick up something or have some “doughgods” ( old west cowboy word for biscuits) by the campfire.
Today the, get-down-rope is used in the same way, especially in training young horses to stand still.
The Git-Down-Rope is used along with your Bosal and hackamore set up. The Bosal is favored by Western Horsemen, especially those following the Traditional Vaquero Style.
The Git-Down-Rope is used in place of a halter and is easy to use.
Watch the How to Video to learn the proper way to attach the old west “git” down rope and the proper comfortable fit for the horse.
