“When we jumped on the team, we knew we had the chance to bring ropers even deeper into the elite inner circle of the roping industry than ever before,” said The Team Roping Journal Editor Chelsea Shaffer. “The chance to further our relationship with Jake, Clay and Matt was a no-brainer, but we also wanted to add Trevor, Patrick and Miles to the team to bring their perspectives to the table.

Never before have ropers been able to access Brazile and Baker’s Relentless horse program, going into the tack room, the warm-up pen, the box and into competition with two of the booming rope horse industry greats.
