American Heartlands & Dusty Reins Stories
Crazy Horse Monument

New tie-down roping videos are published on Tuesdays.

Tie-down Roping is one of the oldest traditional rodeo events in rodeo history. Videos documenting the action from jackpots and rodeos are on this playlist arranged from the most recent to the oldest.

This is a timed event similar to breakaway roping with penalties for breaking the barrier and improperly thrown loops, but the ropers do have to dismount and tie three legs together with a piggin string including both hind legs. The calf must remain tied for 6 seconds for a qualified run.  The stopwatch is stopped when the piggin string has been tied and the competitor throws up both hands. The fastest times are generally within 7-9 seconds.

In addition to pro-rodeo events, I have documented several jackpot competitions including the Story Vest Memorial Roping, the Spicer Gripp Memorial Roping, and the Three Star Memorial Roping so far.

I am trying a bit harder to cover more of these events and I would love to receive your recommendations for roping jackpots in your area to add to my travel schedule shown below. Please Contact Us

Dusty Reins Schedule

You may see several events on the same day. I can only pick one to go next depending on where I was located during the prior event I attended. Fuel is expensive these days!
