2013 Ranch Roping Competition
Saturday, February 16, 2013 Events start at 9 AM. Kittitas Valley Event Center Bloom Pavilion
For more than a hundred years, American cowboys have made their living through the skilled use of horse and rope. Many of the loops they threw had their origin with the Spanish vaqueros. Today, ranch roping organizations such as the Northern Range Ranch Roping Series promote a form of roping that encourages low stress roping with proper horsemanship and stockmanship, employing a variety of functional and, sometimes, fancy loops. To accomplish this, these groups sponsor ranch roping clinics and events to teach and promote this style of roping.
Ranch roping competitions are judged by stock handling, horsemanship, and difficulty of the roping shot. (Time is only a disqualification or a tie breaker). There will be three different events – yearling doctoring, calf branding and bull doctoring. The rules vary for each event; the basis we are going to use can be found online at www.ranchroping.com . Ranch Roping is very different from arena roping as practiced by rodeo cowboys. Time does not determine the winner. Instead, points are earned for fancy or difficult catches and proper handling of cattle. Come out to the Bloom Pavilion at the Kittitas Valley Event Center on Saturday, February 17th, and see these skilled competitors in action.
