The Breakaway Roping Journal Launches Featuring Unprecedented Instruction, Inspiration and News

The Breakaway Roping Journal—the new website from the staff of The Team Roping Journal—launched Sept. 1, kicking off with never-before-seen instruction from world champions, inspiration from up-and-coming talent and news from across the sport.

Women’s Professional Rodeo Association World Champions like Lari Dee Guy, Hope Thompson, Jackie Crawford and Kelsie Chace young-guns and college stars like Loni Lester, Shai Schaefer, Rickie Engesser and Cassie Bahe to provide how-to advice for breakaway ropers of all ages on the new site. Barry Berg, who himself pushed some 200 calves during the Bob Feist Invitational’s All-Girl Championship, provides his explanation on the elements of the perfect push.

“Our team is using an editorial formula that we know works to help ropers improve,” Chelsea Shaffer, editorial director for The Breakaway Roping Journal, said. “The site kicks off with enough new breakaway reading to keep ropers busy, and we’ll be updating the site weekly with new content to keep inspiring you to strive for more in yourself and your friends and family. Plus, our friends across the industry—from rope companies to The Cowboy Channel to the WPRA, WCRA and Rafter L—are on board to help us keep everyone as updated as possible with everything ropers need to know to maximize the Western way of life.”

The same editors who produce the vibrant digital presence of The Team Roping Journal will be at the helm of The Breakaway Roping Journal, so followers can expect up-to-the-minute coverage and entertainment from the team year round.
