Big Loop roping-Valentine, NE-June 1, 2013

Image
Big Loop roping held in Valentine on Saturday June 1, 2013
Image
Long ropes and loops measuring 18 feet in circumference
Image
A plan comes together
Image
The front legs must both be in one loop, and the back legs need to both be in the heel loop.
Image
The ground person and their rope must be mounted before time is called.
Image
Lots of rope
Image
Tailing one over
Image
The 7 looks like L.
Image
Nice horses and saddles in use and on display
Image
Saddletramp visiting with friends
Image
The lady swings a big loop.
Image
Playing with lots of rope
Image
She did very well.
Image
And her next shot on the next steer
Image
Is also good
Image
Another lady made a good shot
Image
Buck Brannaman was one of the participants.

Thanks for sharing, Soapweed. Those kind of events are really fun to watch. Mr. FH says he can't even hold that much
rope in his hand, let alone rope something.
Pretty impressive to have Buck attend. He's been swinging a rope since forever.

Those are some nice photo's again Soapweed. I wish I could have gone to watch. Its fun watching somebody do something different than what I might be used to. I heard all about it from the Tramp while saddling horses Monday moring.

Great photo's of an interesting event. Looks like there were lots of knowledgeable folks on hand to participate..... even if all the ones you show here are using the wrong hands!

This came up on my Facebook "Memories," and thought it should be "bumped" here as well. It was a fun day of watching.
