Ready To Rope

As the community manager of Roping.com, I watch a ton of video footage from our coaches.  The other day, I was going through some clips of run breakdowns with Jake Barnes, and on one of the clips, the header backs in the box, looks at his heeler, and asks, “Are you ready?”  Jake literally stopped

Borrowing A Horse

I recently had a friend reach out to me about an idea for a blog post.  He told me, “Lacey, I have read a lot of articles about buying horses, training horses, and selling horses…but I have never read an article about borrowing a horse!”  He told me a story about a good friend of

Attitude Is Everything: Maintaining Your Mental Game

A wise man once said, “Attitude is the little thing that makes a big difference.”  That wise man was Winston Churchill.  Now, Winston (as far as I know) wasn’t a team roper…but that quote is one that we as team ropers should memorize and remind ourselves of every time we pick up a rope.  Nothing
