Team Roping Summarized

I genuinely despise openly writing about anything I want because I can never think about anything to write about. I guess now that I’ve been doing something that I really love it’s a lot easier to talk about and especially write about. So, I’m going to write about team roping. I personally am a header, so I know a lot about heading of course but I also know about the sport in general. Many people say that rodeo isn’t a sport but if they don’t do it and they try it I bet you they would never last. Team roping isn’t the only event that is a sport every event in rodeo is a tremendously difficult sport. Team roping is one of the more complicated events because there’s a lot of different things you can be penalized for or just things that you need to do to get it done right. So each roping has a different number like a number seven or a number eight and so on. Each Roper has their own number meaning the better the rope or the higher their number and lower number Ropers or either beginning or just not as good. So for a number six roping for instants it is only beginners so the header is a number three Roper and heeler is a number three Roper which adds up to a six. There are three rounds in a roping. The first round has every person every team so when you enter you more than likely get three runs with three different people so if you catch in the first round you will go to the second round but if all three of your runs you don’t catch or the healer doesn’t catch then you are done. If you can’t you go to the second round and they take your time from the first round and second round if you catch and you go to the short round the short round is only the people who caught in the first and second round with faster times. In the short round they are the three times that you get if you catch. Once everyone has roped from the short round they add up the times from all three and they find the people who were the fastest then whoever wins gets whatever pay out. There are a lot of factors into roping such as the deli or the head catch you can only catch around the neck a half head or around the horns. Anything else it’s in no time, but heels if you catch one you get +5 added to your time if you catch two that’s a clean run. Roping’s either will flag on the heel which means they just have to catch and dally and get a time. Higher number roping’s will flag on the face which means the header has to fully turn around and look at the heeler.
