Roping format: Ropings are an informal gathering of ropers to practice Californio style vaquero ranch roping.
The emphasis will be on sharing ideas, practicing new shots, and honing your ranch roping skills.Please note: Our ropings are not suited for first-time ropers and are not intended for riders to
learn roping from scratch. Our ropings are intended for ropers to take the next step to ranch roping.
Some prior roping experience is necessary. Novice ropers are welcome of any age, but they must
have sound horsemanship skills. All novice ropers must have a “break-away” rope.Ropers decide on the format.Possibilities include:

  • 3-man branding
  • 2-man doctoring
  • 1-man doctoring
  • spin board roping
  • reata roping
  • break-away roping for novices
  • …etc. All ideas will be considered.
Equipment requirements:
  • No rubber on the horn
  • No chain curb straps or tie-downs
  • No broken mouth shank bits or mechanical hackamores
  • Ropes must be 40 feet or longer
  • Authentic vaquero and/or buckaroo tack and attire are encouraged.

  4. If I am up to it I will come after the EXCA event in Acton this Saturday, spend the night, and rope on Sunday.
    Also I was wondering if the picture utilized this website is appropriate. Would it not be a better example of healing with both rear hooves in the loop?
