Tie Down Roping
Team roping is professional rodeo’s only true team event. It requires precise timing and anticipation between the header and heeler.
The header’s job is to rope the steer around the horns, neck or a horn-neck combination, then turn the steer to the left so that the heeler can ride in and rope both of the steer’s hind legs.
The clock starts when the ropers leave their respective boxes, and it stops when their ropes are taught and their horses face each other. A 5-second penalty is assessed if the heeler catches only one leg. The team receives a 10-second penalty if the header fails to give the steer its allotted head start.
