Breaking It Down

Speed Williams

This month I want to talk about a tricky subject, failure. If you will do the homework and are 100% honest with yourself, you can usually turn your failures into great opportunities for improvement.
Headers, if all your heelers miss but catch for their other partners, there’s a good chance much of the blame lies with you. The other day I went to the Biggest East of the Mississippi and entered six times. I broke one barrier and turned all of my steers. All six of my heelers missed or roped a leg. At the time when I was asked what was wrong, my answer was "I’m not dragging them into the heel loops."
