We spent 22 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. Any rodeo contender or working cowboy can tell you that lassoing cattle is no easy task. It requires a lot of training to master the technique, but, unfortunately, you may not always have the luxury of real live cows to practice on. That's where these roping dummies can help. They can be quickly and easily set up anywhere, allowing you to hone your skills whenever the mood strikes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best roping dummy on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 15, 2018: Roping dummies must be able to stand up to constant wear from a lasso slipping over the horns, so we made sure to only include tough, well-built models. We also wanted to include a variety of units to suit both heading and heeling practice needs.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
