At third level, a Gaucho may use a 10-foot or longer piece of rope as a whip or shape it into a lasso. When you hit a target using a rope, lasso, or whip, you can attempt to grapple it at any target within your reach as a bonus action.
Born to the Saddle
Starting at 3rd level, your mastery as a rider becomes apparent. You have advantage on saving throws made to avoid falling off your mount. If you fall off your mount and descend no more than 10 feet, you can land on your feet if youíre not incapacitated.
Finally, mounting or dismounting a creature costs you only 5 feet of movement, rather than half your speed.

While mounted, you can roll your Animal Handling for any Athletics check.
Strength of a Horse
Starting at 10th level, you may now add your mountís Strength modifier to any melee weapon damage or grappling check while mounted. If using a whip or rope while mounted and the gaucho hits, they can attempt to knock the target down. if the target is Large or smaller, it must make a Strength saving throw. On a failed save, you knock the target prone.
At 15th level, If you have a target grappled with a whip or rope, you can use your action to try to pin a creature grappled by you. To do so, make another grapple check. If you succeed, target is restrained until the grapple ends.
For the purposes of Moving a Grappled Creature or Shoving a Creature while mounted, you count as the same size as your mount. While using a whip, rope, or lasso, you can Shove a grappled creature 10 feet.
