New Team Roping Association Aims to Transform Team Roping Industry

A new team roping association has been recently formed with anticipation to entertain ropers with homegrown western integrity and great events.  The Professional Team Ropers of America (PTRA), created by Clinton Baylor, will offer participants a new twist on team ropings. “In addition to giving ropers an extraordinary team roping experience, The PTRA will  include a concert on Saturday night with headlining country singers, as well as add on events to entertain the whole family” Clinton says.

Clinton continues by adding, “We want the ropers to know that the PTRA values them. Our goal is to provide a superior roping experience for our team ropers. Regardless of our ropers’ experience, we want to ensure that everyone has an ample opportunity to win the roping they choose to enter with even and fair cattle that are appropriate to the roping they are being used for and a professional, trustworthy and organized staff.”

Clinton formed the Professional Team Ropers of America and Lightning Bolt Entertainment as a way to bring roping events and country music concerts together for an unprecedented experience. The PTRA plans to feature some of the biggest name country performers for Saturday night concerts.  In addition, plans are also to include other events such as barrel racing, tie-down and breakaway roping and other events sidelined with each team roping.


There is no card to purchase – No add-on or extra fees, just great team roping and great entertainment to put a twist on the America’s best cowboy sport.
