“Small Town Rodeo. Big Time Fun.Team_Roping That's the motto of the Lone Pine Film Festival Rodeo, which once again will be taking place all day Saturday at the historic Lone Pine Rodeo Grounds, just behind the Museum. The rodeo has been organized for the past several years by volunteer Tim Jones, whose goal all along has been to try to bring this Western heritage event back to Lone Pine.  

Join our regional cowboy's this Saturday for an exciting afternoon of "Team Roping." Know also as heading and heeling, Team Roping is a rodeo event that features a steer and two mounted riders. The first roper is referred to as the "header," the person who ropes the front of the steer, usually around the horns, but it is also legal for the rope to go around the neck, or go around one horn and the nose resulting in what they call a "half head". The second is the "heeler," who ropes the steer by its hind feet, with a five second penalty assessed to the end time if only one leg is caught. Team roping is the only rodeo event where men and women compete equally together in professionally sanctioned competition, in both single-gender or mixed-gender teams.

The origin of Team Roping is the heritage of early ranch Cowboys who developed a technique on working ranches when it was necessary to capture and restrain a full-grown animal that was too large to handle by a single man. Team roping popularity has grown tremendously in the last fifteen years and handicapping systems have been developed to even the competition. Today there are tens of thousands of amateur ropers who compete for millions of dollars in prize money.

Team Roping is great family sport. Women & men, people from ages 7 to 80 can enjoy team roping. It's fun watching kids roping with their parents, brothers and sisters and grandparents.
