Oklahoma Team Roping at Wood Guest Ranch
Wood Guest Ranch has 150 ft. x 300 ft arena equipped with full bleachers, grand stands and brand new lighting for night Roping when the Oklahoma weather gets too hot. We have a full concession stand and plenty of action to keep you entertained watching some of the best Cowboys and Cowgirls from both sides of the Red River compete in fully sanctioned Team Roping events where the riders earn points and compete for money and prizes, including a custom made Wood Guest Ranch Saddle. If you are a Cowboy or Cowgirl who would like to participate in our Rodeo Events, CLICK HERE.
What is Oklahoma Team Roping?
Team roping, also known as heading and heeling, is a rodeo event that features a steer (typically a calf) 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.
