Ranch Roping Series

Mission Statement:

The Main focus of TVCC's ranch roping series is to:

1) Create a sport promoting the different areas needed to be successful ranch roping.    

2) Set a solid foundation in young kids and horses getting ready to enter the rodeo arena.   

3) Provide a fun atmosphere where parents and kids can play together at any age or skill level.  

4) Help kids develop skills in the equine and ranching industry that could lead to a part time or full time business.  

5) Offer an educational series with college credits available 

         - ANS 144 Ranch Roping Syllabus (Nov 6th - Nov 10th)     

Dual Credit 

  College Credits Available

    For High School Students!!!  

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.
