2015’s season has come to a close in the tie down roping and today, October 1, is the dawn of the 2016 season. Exciting is one of the many adjectives that could describe this year’s season. The top 5 have been switching spots all year and a couple made an amazing comeback to sneak in the Top 15.
We are proud to announce that Team Rattler at the National Finals Rodeo will consist of Marty Yates, Cade Swor, Timber Moore, and Caleb Smidt. We’re looking for big things to happen under the bright lights of Vegas and wish our guys the best of luck!
2o15 National Finals Rodeo Tie Down Roping Qualifiers
Calf ropers of all ages had a big opportunity this week in the tie down event. Westyn Hughes proved that at 17 years old he can hang with the wolves winning two of the three go rounds at the coveted Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping in Hereford, TX winning a chunk of change amounting over $7,700. Hughes will be one to watch in 2016.
The world title race is getting tighter and tighter as Caleb Smidt had a big weekend winning Dodge City and nearly $7,000 to close the gap between him and Marty Yates to a margin of $353.02. The cowboys are getting ready to head to the Northwest to finish out the eight critical weeks of the regular season. It’s do or die from here on out.
