Yes they can be. We raise Texas Longhorns. Not into the roping activities, but from what others tell me, they prefer Longhorn steers or bulls with horns little past their ears. Depending on the Longhorn's lineage, horns can appear this long anywhere between about 4 to 8 months of age for animals anywhere between about 300 and 500 lbs.

Longhorns can be very active, will jump around a lot if spooked or challenged and are extremely agile. On the flip side, if your treat them nicely, talk to them, mingle with them, and hand-feed them cubes, they are as gentle and peaceful as lambs. They're very easy to herd, sort, etc., and one person can cut one out for moving to another pen, etc., by calling their name and hand-feeding them cubes.

Don't know much about corriente's, but understand they are a touch wild and wooly critters...may be wrong.
