Tuf Cooper breaks down his match at the Cinch Roping Fiesta
After his win at the Cinch Roping Fiesta over the weekend, Tuf Cooper joined Steve Kenyon on Western Sports Roundup to talk about how it all went down.
Cooper, a four-time world champion, defeated 2019 world champion Haven Meged in a $20,000 match. Each cowboy roped 16 calves in one day.
Cooper has previously matched in San Angelo against six-time tie-down roping world champion Cody Ohl, and his father Roy has won nine matches there.
“It’s so much fun to compete.......To get do it 16 times in one day is a cowboy’s dream,” he said. “Match roping was really meaningful for me and my family......It’s every ropers dream to get to match up there.”
The event featured breakaway roping, tie-down roping and steer roping.
