For this game, you’ll need to prepare a rope with a lasso knot and cover a bail of hay with a sheet or blanket. You’ll also need a target, something a lasso can easily fit around, like a stick horse, set up five or six feet away from the bail of hay. Have guests take turns trying to lasso the target, while sitting on the bail of hay, like they would a horse. Learn how to tie and throw a lasso here. Give your guests some pointers on how to throw the rope before starting the game.
