PRCA Rule Book


 "Our first ever Patriot Calf Roping last year was a huge success and since then we've been planning for the 2017 season, anticipating even bigger numbers as the popularity of this World Class Event grows.  This year we are adding 4 new ropings, including a WPRA Co-Approved Open Ladies Breakaway, All Girl Tiedown, American Qualifier, and a 10 & Under Breakaway.  As producers, my team and I take great pride in the entire process of putting on an event of this magnitude and are honored once again to be working in conjunction with The Patriot."

"The Young Guns World Championships was a huge success!  Garrett Chick and Colbey Payne won the Young Guns World Championships and will advance to the American Semi Finals, representing THE PATRIOT. We are thrilled to have Smarty remain as the Young Guns and Dummy Roping Title Sponsors. It has been our pleasure to work with the group at Smarty. They have a solid machine that has really made a name for itself in this industry."

Smarty is the only trainer of its kind to be totally designed by a 4-time World Champion, Allen Bach. Allen was involved in the evolution of another roping machine from the mid 90's until 2009. In 2010, he decided to engineer the perfect training tool that he had dreamed up over three decades. After almost two years of testing he launched the first Smarty in October 2011. Since then, Smarty has been titled the "Pros" machine. More top ropers prefer Smarty than any other machine.
