2021 Start Date Postponed

Unfortunately, due to AHS COVID regulations, we will not be able to start our roping practices and Buckle Series the beginning of May as we had hoped.  Currently, in accordance to AHS, the maximum number of people allowed at any roping practice/event is 10 people total. This includes spectators, parents, riders ect.

Until the COVID regulations ease to a point where we can allow all paid members to attend a practice/event, we are going to postpone our start date. 
We apologize for this disappointing update.  We are hoping that we will all be able to rope together soon!
