California Dreamin' with Amy Witt

Team Roping + Fashion

with Amy Witt

Ropers Sports News is proud to introduce a new monthly column written by aspiring journalist and fashionista Amy Witt, Porterville, Calif. “Besides team roping, I eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. Not only do I have a strong sense of knowledge and education in the fashion industry, I have been active in the western/rodeo industry for more than seven years, winning national and state championship titles. I am a designer for Wrangler as well, and have an up and coming clothing line, Cowboy Fresh. Team roping and fashion is what I do!”

Since I started roping at 12 years old, I have always been a very dedicated user of Cactus Ropes. From Tammy (West) White’s TW Special to the Amigo and Bad Boy, you wouldn’t catch me without a Cactus in my hand. Last month, I entered the Oakdale 10-Steer, Joanie Gatz Memorial All-Girl. It was the first time I’ve entered this roping in several years and I was in desperate need of some new ropes. But instead of instantly gravitating towards a Cactus, I decided I would try another company. As I began practicing and preparing for this roping, I was inspired to conduct an experiment. Not only would I break-in and practice with a Cactus extra-soft Whistler, I would also simultaneously break-in a soft Classic Spydr5.

Sometimes these record high temps get in the way of our summer plans. With California’s heat wave upon us, it can be a bit discouraging and unmotivating to want to adventure too far from home. Living in Tulare County, I am quite familiar with the struggle of trying to beat the heat, get horses rode while keeping it exciting. So, I’ve compiled a few ideas to inspire you to journey horseback through these hot months.

Backing into the box at the California High School Rodeo Association (CHSRA) State Finals, Rylee George had qualified in four events and was also District 5’s All-Around Cowgirl. But, she wasn’t going to end her year with just those titles – she would depart her junior year being crowned as the 2018 State All-Around Cowgirl and State Champion Header.

“It feels incredible to win All-Around at State,” George expresses.
