Kayla Starnes & United States Team Roping Championships

Forward by Clinton Anderson

Team roping evolved into a sport when a couple of cowboys turned a common ranching procedure into competition. Traditionally used to secure a steer so it could be branded or doctored, one cowboy would rope the front legs and the other the hind legs resulting in the immobilization of the steer. Now, a full-fledged and growing sport, the governing organization The United States Team Roping Championships and amateur roper Kayla Starnes, have put together an official handbook for everyone involved with team roping or wishing to take up the sport.

Following a thorough introduction to the basics--how to select ropes, horses, and judge rider proficiency; the authors go on to cover rope handling and practice on and off the horse; learning the ins and outs of competition; rules and judging, evaluating your own runs, and much more. The book features advice from multiple-time World champion team ropers and professional instructors Rickey Green and Speed Williams who offer up valuable tips on how they coach their students from groundwork to preparing for and entering competition. With the help of this indispensable guidebook anyone can become a team roper.
