I am starting a new project showcasing “team roping”. Team roping is a rodeo sport where two riders chase down a steer and one rider ropes the head of the steer and the other ropes the hind feet. With luck this all happens in a matter of 5 or 6 seconds. It’s a tough competitive sport full of tough competitive cowboys and a few cowgirls. I’m going to be spending the next year following a pair of team ropers who are hoping to live the dream of competitive team ropers. Come by here to follow the success, heartbreaks and struggles of Jason and Miranda.
Here are a few photos from last week when I was in Montana and caught up with them and some friends practicing their skills.
