Team Roping: The Ultimate Display of Skill and Precision 

Team roping stands alone as the only rodeo event that spotlights the teamwork of two contestants – a header and a heeler. The dance begins with the header roping the horns of the spirited steer. With impeccable timing, the header then dallies or wraps his rope around the saddle horn, expertly turning the steer to the left. This is the moment the heeler has been waiting for – with swift and precise timing, the heeler throws a loop that ensnares both hind legs of the steer. The clock halts as both ropers bring their quarry to a halt, facing each other in a showdown of skill and spirit.

A Legacy of Teamwork and Tradition

Team roping’s roots trace back to the early days of ranching, where cowboys needed to manage large steers for treatments and branding. The collaboration of a header and a heeler was essential, and thus, the art of team roping was born. Today, the tradition lives on at Lost Trails Ranch, where the bond between ropers and their horses is palpable. Hard work and practice are the cornerstones of success in team roping, where precision and coordination are vital for victory.

Step into the Arena 

As you step into the arena at Lost Trails Ranch, you’ll witness the embodiment of teamwork and timing. The header and heeler start from opposite boxes, poised for action as the steer makes its entrance. The arena comes alive with the thrill of the chase as the ropers embark on their journey to capture the elusive steer. A carefully set head start, and the release of a breakaway barrier mark the beginning of this gripping contest. And don’t forget, precision is key – ropers are penalized if they break the barrier too soon.

Enjoy a fine meal served up in The Ranch House.
