Tapaderos

Tapaderos serve several purposes, including:

While riders of all types sometimes ride with tapaderos, they are particularly favored among working cowboys and cowgirls, people that ride in cold conditions, and trail riders.

Tapaderos are also frequently used with young riders, as many parents and riding instructors feel they are an essential safety precaution to keep children's feet from accidentally going through the stirrup.

Trap - A trap is a small pasture that serves as a temporary holding area for livestock.

The size of a trap is relative to the size of the rest of the property. For example, someone who owns a small property, such as 80 acres, might consider just one acre, or even 1/2 acre, to be a trap. Someone who owns or manages a larger property of several thousand acres might consider a trap to be several hundred acres, or even several sections (a section is 640 acres).
