San Juan County resident Jim Keyes held a roping workshop at the Emery County Indoor Arena Saturday, April 2.
The workshop, hosted by the Emery County 4-H, centered around teaching young ropers the ins-and-outs of the sport. Keyes passed out tips on roping cows and horses to a large group of children and their parents.
The group also learned how to roll their ropes, what types of ropes to use, and what techniques were best suited for various situations.
The students honed their newly taught skills by practicing on dummies. They were then able to mount their horses and practice separating cows from a small herd.
Keyes has been a youth roping instructor for four years.
