Thanks to The Feed Store!

Philip made many miles with the Heelomatic helping the Youth! We would like to thank Philip Schellenberg for his years of directing our Youth Program at the CRC. You have helped to grow the program, and we appreciate all you have done! Our new 2020 directors will take on what you have helped to build, and continue with our successful Youth Program!

The Cochrane Roping Club launched a Youth Roping Club in 2009. 

The Youth Roping Program provides profession instruction to any youth interested in roping. Participants will learn roping, horsemanship and arena etiquette in an environment that focuses on safety and learning.

All skill levels are welcome!  We provide professional instruction for all levels.

Safety is our number one priority.  Our instructor will assess each participant and make recommendations based on knowledge, skill level and equipment. Horses are not required for beginner ropers. Roping dummies & roping cattle are provided by the Cochrane Roping Club.  Horses, ropes and other equipment are not provided.

2016-2017-2018 Youth Roping Program

The last several seasons the instructor was Jeff Quam.  Jeff is a champion team roper, as both a header and heeler.  Jeff is a tremendous teacher for ropers of all experience levels! He has the patience to work with the learning roper and earns the respect of the youth with his own high skilled roping techniques. He will let the kids rope/try and then add his advice as he watches the individual roper progress. We are hopeful to have Jeff come again next season!

Please contact our Youth Roping Director for more information. (listed in the Contact tab).
