World Champion Teaches North Dakota Ropers

Posted: Updated:

Athletes rarely get a personal lesson from one of the best in their sport, but ropers from the upper Midwest are getting the chance to learn from an eight-time world champion this week in Bowman.

Joe Beaver is teaching tie-down and breakaway clinics this week to all levels of ropers. Today, he held a pros-only clinic. Ropers from 5 different states and Saskatchewan were able to work with him individually. This is the 5th year he's visited North Dakota.

"A lot of kids are getting scholarships, and they're getting their educations paid for just like hockey, football, baseball, everything else," Beaver says. "So, it's fun for me to come back and see the progress the kids make every year."

Beaver will continue with tie-down clinics tomorrow and Wednesday.
