Rodeo Loop

Maybe one of the hardest kite tricks...the Rodeo Loop. The secret to this trick is the size of steer that needs to used. Pick one too big and the loop gets low and lazy. Pick one too small and the loop goes high tight resulted and a short landing. Each bull has a unique name and number used to identify the bull. A sufficient number of bulls, each judged to be of good strength, health, agility, and age, are selected to perform. Duke choose Black eye and Double Barrel. At first sight, there doesn't appear to be much in the way of equipment used during a bull kiting. However, riders use many pieces of equipment both functionally and to ensure maximum safety, both to themselves and to the animals involved. Aloha and good luck
