ANS 144 Ranch Roping 


TVCC offers a one day training for high school teachers during the summer to teach ANS 144 to their students.  High school teachers will teach the material to their students and then come to two training sessions hosted by Wade Black and TVCC students on a selected Friday that best fits the students and teachers. Students will then come to TVCC to pass the practical test either at one of the Saturday competitions, or arrangements can be made between the high school instructor and TVCC.  The full course of ANS 144 Ranch Roping will be taught Nov 6-10 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday. Saturday will be the first ranch roping competition.  This class can also be taken as a Community Ed class.
