lasso

stiff manila, cotton or rawhide rope suitable for making a noose at the end. Called also lariat. The loop is thrown around the animal's neck or one or more legs while working the cattle on the range or in stockyards. Usually used from horseback and exerting a strong pull by locking the rope around the horn on the pommel of the saddle, or by using a harness when working in yards. A quick-release honda used to make the loop is an advantage when loosing a wild animal.
The lasso is used while on foot by a horsebreaker wanting to reach the first hands-on step in the breaking-in process.
