2nd Annual Roping Clinic With Eric Fabian

This clinic is geared towards absolute beginners or some who have little experience. It is grouped by experience level, not age; meaning absolutely anyone can come join!

Our clinician brings a roping dummy, and by the end each person will be able to rope the non-moving dummy.

Eric teaches roping from the ground up. It’s all on the ground (not on horseback) and focuses on basics, rope handling, rope knowledge, and then everyone as a group will participate in roping activities. 


We take payment to book the spot.


This will take place in our indoor arena and is rain or shine!

Come learn how to rope!
