MANITOBA TEAM ROPING ASSOCIATION
The M.T.R.A was established in 1975 and has seen many different walks of life from ranchers & business men to nurses and dentists compete in the association.
Team roping also known as heading and heeling is an event that features a steer (typically a Corriente) 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.
The Manitoba Team Roping association uses numbered ropings to allow competitors of any ability to successfully have a chance to win.
