Team Roping

Team Roping at the Ellicottville Championship Rodeo

Team roping is the only rodeo event that features two contestants. The team is made up of a header and a heeler. The header ropes the horns, then dallies or wraps his rope around his saddle horn and turns the steer to the left for the other cowboy who ropes the heels. The heeler must throw the loop with precision timing to catch both of the steer’s hind legs. Once both ropers have made a catch, pulled their horses and steer to a stop, and are facing each other, the time clock stops.
