Ranch Roping Competitions at Flying H Stables

 

December 2009 Issue

 

     Flying H Stables, in Missoula , Montana , will hold two ranch roping competitions in their indoor arena — Saturday, December 5, 2009 and Saturday, January 2, 2010 — beginning at 10:00 a.m. each day.

     Boone Jones, Western Montana District Brand Inspector, organizes the competitions, as he has for the last eight winters.

    

     Seven competitions are held at four indoor venues in Western Montana , including Flying H Stables. According to Jones, they are a way for all levels of ropers to have fun in the winter, with three levels of classes, from amateur or “Little” to open or “Big” roping.

     Teams of three riders rope and then “put down” a designated marked steer from a herd (as if for doctoring). Teams work with three steers during each event. Points are awarded for difficulty of loop and time.

     For more information on the competitions, call Jones at 406-240-0830 or 777-3424 (evenings).

     In addition to hosting events, Flying H Stables offers long-term boarding for up to 95 horses, overnight boarding, interim recuperation care, jumping, dressage and eventing lessons, horse training by resident trainer Will Balis, day rides, and monthly or yearly indoor arena riding memberships. There are separate pastures to accommodate personalities, and twice daily feedings (all hay used is raised on the acreage).

     There are several outdoor arenas, a round pen, a 75 x 175 foot indoor arena and 100 acres to ride on. Arenas may also be rented by horse trainers, riding instructors and for special events.

      For more information on Flying H Stables call 406-543-RIDE (7433) or visit www.flyinghstables.com.
