Apparatus for roping training

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #5709386.

An apparatus for use in roping skills training and practice. This invention is designed particularly for providing a practical, effective, lightweight and economical alternative to live animal practice for "heeling", the roping of the hind legs of steers and calves for rodeo team roping events. This apparatus includes a hollow simulated animal torso or full body with simulated hind legs. The apparatus has a simple support frame and is energized by a DC motor and 12 volt battery. A finger adjusted, spring loaded transmission provides for adjusting the speed of the leg and body movement. A unique cam arrangement and an interconnection between the simulated animal body and the simulated legs provides for lifelike coordinated leg and body movement.
