Roping.com continues to bring the best competitors and teachers in the world together by adding top team ropers Manny Egusquiza and Martin Lucero to the site. Their videos will be the first on Roping.com to be available in both Spanish and English, giving viewers the option to learn in their preferred language.
Lucero, the 2010 NFR Average Champion, has amassed more than $1.6 million in PRCA earnings since he joined in 1991, and has qualified for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo 16 times. He lives in Stephenville, Texas, with his wife, Jodee, and three kids. An excellent team roper and teacher, Lucero has also proven himself a great coach, running schools for young up-and-coming ropers.
Egusquiza’s reputation as a top header that is no secret—his win at the 2021 Bob Feist Invitational (BFI) with partner Kory Koontz is just one of many. He’s also skilled at working young horses, a skill he proved in February when he piloted Firstt Rebel to the Roping Futurities of America High Stakes Heading Championship.
“The roping community is thriving with diversity, and we want Roping.com to reflect that,” said Chelsea Shaffer, Editor of The Team Roping Journal. “We want to reach ropers wherever they are, in whatever language they speak, to maximize people’s precious family time in the arena. This series is about expanding the reach of team roping into communities we haven’t traditionally served, and it’s just the beginning of a long-held goal to make our content accessible to the Spanish-speaking community.”
In the new video series on Roping.com, members can watch as Egusquiza and Lucero give viewers an exclusive look into their practice sessions, run breakdowns and more. They cover topics like:
- Box Work for Headers
- Maintaining Correct Body Position
- Creating Consistency and Adding Speed During Drills
- Best Roping Bits and more!
