Louis Estates hosting team roping rodeo event

Louis Estates is set to host a team roping rodeo event next weekend at its arena on Westside Road.

After a tune-up session by one of the best in the business, Louis Estates is set to host a team roping rodeo event next weekend at its arena on Westside Road.

The event, sanctioned by the B.C. Team Roping Association, is free to spectators and goes Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The arena is roughly six kilometres from the north end of Westside Road.

Louis Estates recently hosted a team roping school, presented by Ricky Green, a former National Finals Rodeo and World champion team roper.

Green, a Texan who operates Power Team Roping, has been teaching the art of roping for more than 30 years.

The one-day event went for eight hours and covered the foundations of roping technique, including heading and heeling.

“We were fortunate to have him at our arena, and we’re looking forward to doing another school in 2014,” said Bobby Louis.

Louis Estates also plans to host other provincial and high school rodeo events next season, including their third annual Lucky 7 Team Roping event next May.

To register for the team roping, or for more information about Louis Estates, phone 250-542-4527, or e-mail louisestates@hotmail.com.
