And this coming April 15th I will be speaking in support of the OU Medical Centers Volunteer
Program at the Cattleman's Restaurant in the Oklahoma city Stock Yards. Our volunteers are the
best kind medicine by using their love and compassion to bring faith hope and love to people in dire
circumstances. Over the last eight years I have been blessed to be able to visit children's many
times. I understand some of what they are going through because of my personal experience when
I was a child. My poor health forced me to live in an oxygen tent for the better part of my sixth
year of life. During those times I didn't have much contact with the outside world and one day a
visitor brought me a trick rope and a cap gun which proved to be ingredients for my recovery as
well as my future stardom. There is nothing more satisfying that helping others and only true
happiness comes form the desire to do so. Continue Story.......

for many professional cowboys over the
years. As a boy I can remember stooping
by Cattleman's on my way to the National
Finals Rodeo and it being only second to
the rodeo its self.

Professional Spinning ropes by 4-T by Saddle Co.
Professional Trick Ropes are a special 3/8" woven cotton spot cord that has been
treated and stretched for up to 30 days to provide the superb loop. These specially
designed ropes have a patented design and a core center that allows the rope to twist
naturally and un-wind in the palm of your hand. Every roper is manufactured to have a
consistent weight small or large loops. Every rope is inspected and tested.
2016 4-T Saddle Co. Professional Trick rope are available for order for summer 2016.

Trick roping for beginners will include preparing your rope and warming up and stretching
and spinning basic loop spinning. Advanced ropers welcome. Lesson will include warming
up, stretching and spinning an actual trick roping ropes
will be supplied for each program.
Many young people ask the how
to do trick roping and he always
takes time to work with
beginners no matter were he is
and he even allows them to use
his ropes often giving them
success. I encourage our youth to become physically active and I do this
through a structured lesson in warming up, stretching and rope spinning.
Little known fact: In Los Angeles a (Trick Roping) Rope Spinning exercise class
is held throughout the year at the YMCA. There is really no trick to trick roping.
It is a skill similar to jump roping. It is acquired physical movement and
dedication to practice.
