Youth Roping Program

2020 Youth Roping Schedule

Starting July 8 – August 26, 2020

Practice nights will be on Wednesdays starting at 6:30pm to 9:00pm.

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. Participants must be younger than 21 years old &  ID may be requested.

Youth Roping Program – Team Roping

2016, 2017, and 2018 Youth Roping Program

Our 2019 Youth Members at Wrap Up Funday!

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!
