Rocky Mountain Ranch Roping & Stock Horse Association


Ranch roping is the art of "la reata" with its roots deep in the vaquero/long rope/dally style rope use. It is now enjoying a revival with renewed interest not only from cowboys and livestock raisers but from recreational horse folks too.

Ranch roping is the practical application of roping livestock, whether the intent is to catch a stray animal, brand cattle, or treat sick stock. This practical approach to roping is gaining popularity among working ranch cowboys and horse owners that are interested in learning new livestock handling skills.

Riders of any skill level and age can compete in this sport provided that they are on a horse that has a little "cow savvy" and responds to signals using one hand on the rein and leg cues.
