The Brannaman Pro-AM is a unique vaquero-style roping set for October 19-22, at the Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Center in Santa Ynez, California, conceived by horsemanship clinician, Buck Brannaman and his daughter Reata.

Billed as the Richest Ranch Roping in the World, contestants are required to dress in traditional cowboy attire and use traditional cowboy gear. As Buck says of the event, “For years I’d been wanting to do a roping event styled after a pro-am golf tournament.

Two-person teams enter and come to town, and out of a pool of handpicked pros that I have chosen; we’ll draw their third team member. That will be their team for the weekend. It’s going to be a neat deal – after two days we’ll take the top 30 teams for the finals held the third day, on Sunday.

Unlike a lot of ranch ropings, it’s going to have serious prize money.” Bill Reynolds is co-producing the event with Buck. “Buck and I have worked together for over 30 years,” he says, “and we both agree that in order for a tradition based culture to continue, the good parts of it have to truly shine.”

The event also features a carefully chosen array of vendors and the Fusion Western Show hosted by Nevada Watt. The Wrangler Buck Brannaman Pro-Am Vaquero Roping is free for spectators to watch 100 teams compete for substantial prize money in the classic California ranch roping style.
