WATCH: Team Roping Qualifier

Those in the know say Sunday at Cheyenne Frontier Days was as good a display of team roping skill as you’d ever encounter. A total of 72 teams advanced out of the qualifying rounds to performances that begin next weekend and did so with runs ranging from seven to twelve seconds. A number of former Central Rocky Mountain Region college stars were among those to move on for a chance at a coveted buckle from ‘The Daddy.’ If you aren’t aware of strategy in team roping stick around for the last run here by Hershey, Nebraska’s Cooper and Tucker White. Cooper was an all-around cowboy for Gillette College.

Qualifying rounds of team roping Sunday at Cheyenne Frontier Days trimmed the field of more than 160 to 72 teams that advance to afternoon performances starting next weekend. Brothers Riley and Brady Minor from Ellensburg, Washington were fastest stopping the clock at 7.1 seconds. Heeler Brady has confidence in his horse no matter where they compete.
