As a weapon, the lasso is thrown with the intent of the noose catching around the opponent's neck. If the user is on horseback, sufficient force can cause a hangman's fracture and crush the trachea, although it is more likely that the victim will be strangled or trampled by other horses while being dragged behind the user's horse.
