Smarty Roping Dummy

Realistic Corner for Heelers - Riding your horse in the correct position is vital to increasing your odds of catching. If you use a machine that cuts the corner when it turns, it forces you to compensate by adjusting your position. Now, with Smarty, you can ride in the same position as you would in a live run. 

Realistic Dallying - Smarty's legs come together and pull back like a real steer. The combination of the expanding hitch and leg mimic the jerk you get in a live run.

Realistic Leg's - Smarty's leg's are solid and not like the plastic legs on other machines. Because of this, when your rope hits the legs, they feel and sound authentic.

Easy to Pull - Smarty rides on wide skis and is light-weight so that your ATV doesn't take the wear and tear you would get with heavier machines.

Easy to Break Down - Have you ever wanted to take you dummy apart and take with you. Well, now you can. Just pull a few pins and you can load it in your truck or trailer by yourself.

Removable Body - Take the Smarty body off and rope it on the ground. The body was perfectly designed as a ground dummy so that Smarty would be all you need for your practice sessions. Also, heelers can rope the legs like a saw horse once the body is removed.

Turn Loose Horns - These aren't your normal turn-loose horns. Now headers can make a full run and when they face, the rope will pop off from the front.


Horns Length: 25 inches

Dimensions: 14' x 36' x 46'

The Heel-O-Matic Drifter The Heel-O-Matic Drifter
The Heel-O-Matic Drifter

The Drifter training system allows you to train a heel horse to both you and the steer. This training system improves a driver’s ability to create a wider variety of realistic corners. The behaviors of different types of cattle, including fresh steers and older steers, can be more closely replicated with adjustable amounts of washout. The collapsible legs produce a hide-like feel.  You will experience a more realistic feel. This realistic experience extends from dally to finish. The spring loaded tongue negates much of the jerk experienced by drivers, the machine, and your roping horse. This encourages a strong finish to the saddle horn. The machine suit reduces slipping from the plastic and provides a more realistic rope action. The initial contact of the head loop is deadened. The machine suit also aids in creating consistent washout action. 

  • Three-stage washout
  • Collapsible deluxe legs
  • Spring-loaded tongue
