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!”

Recipes by Erica Krantz

I've always loved to cook! Trying different meals, either from magazine clippings or friend’s family recipes, my motto is "I'll always cook it once, if you don't like it, I'm sure my dogs will!" My mother taught me the basics of cooking, the rest I've picked up from watching a million cooking shows and reading tons of cookbooks. But what I love the most is seeing the look on my friends' faces when I hand them their plate and they take that first bite!
