dear roper

Dear Roper, About a decade ago, our Account Representative Nick Griggs texted me at 6 a.m. Vegas time to let me know he’d be down at the South Point Hotel & Casino’s Café for breakfast. Nick and I didn’t aknow each other very well then—I was just 23 and fresh out of college, and Nick—well I won’t tell you how old he was, but safe to say he’s had some decades of experience in this industry. I’m a morning person, and I was already wide awake pecking away at my keyboard in my barely-unpacked hotel room when I got the text. I remember putting on my first “Vegas” outfit, which at the time was a new pair of jeans and a shirt that said Spin To Win Rodeo, and I zipped down…

ariat wstr finale xv rescheduled to 2021; ropers can re-enter at a discount by jan. 29, 2021

Due to restrictions imposed by Nevada’s Governor on Nov. 22, the 2020 ARIAT World Series of Team Roping Finale XV was forced to reschedule to the following year, causing the association to pivot its plan with benefits for contestants to stay entered or re-enter. Because the Finale could not be moved to another state with such short notice, the association held Mega-Qualifiers in Wickenburg, Arizona, and Decatur and San Antonio, Texas. For results from those qualifiers, see page 50. With the expectation that a vaccine will allow life and roping to return to normal in 2021, the WSTR will offer Finale ropers a qualification for each entry, which hopefully will put already-entered ropers first among all other members of WSTR for the 2021 Finale. “We want to be as flexible as possible to…

march of the titans

Organizers of the Wrangler Bob Feist Invitational Week announced that the $700,000 Wrangler BFI, held for 35 years in Reno, will partner in March 2021 with the other titan of the roping industry—the $200,000 Cinch Timed Event Championships—as they converge during the same week in Oklahoma’s Lazy E Arena. Wrangler BFI Week will happen March 14–18, immediately following the CTEC on March 11–13. “It’s been an incredibly difficult year for us all,” said Lazy E General Manager Dan Wall, who credits the arena’s success throughout the pandemic to its intense safety protocols, expansive camping areas and limited access in and out. “It really wears on contestants, fans, stock contractors and all involved in this sport to hear of events already canceling for 2021. Instead, we feel like this partnership between the Cinch…

just that good: nogueira and apache r hali win senior heading, reserve in senior heeling at 2020 aqha world show

Junior Nogueira’s 2007 gray mare, Apache R Hali, has won over $600,000 in her career, but Nov. 18, 2020, she captured two titles that solidify her greatness in team roping’s history books: AQHA World Champion in Senior Heading and Reserve World Champion in Senior Heeling. With two ever-safe neck catches from Nogueira, Hali outshined the top show horses in the country on the head side, finishing a point ahead of Two Eyed Meterman and Casey Hicks to win $3,276 and the bragging rights that accompany AQHA’s golden globe. “Blake Hughes said he roped steers in the pasture on her when she was a baby,” said Nogueira, 30, of Lipan, Texas. “I ran some at the house to get her ready for the World Show this year. She’s seen them a little bit,…
