Words from Ricky Canton


Hello to Everyone,

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope this finds you & your family well! I would like to end 2014 on the note of telling everyone who entered a roping or helped at one of my Ropings THANK YOU for making the Ropings Awesome! This past year, we had the BIGGEST turn out ever! Sometimes averaging about 420 ropers a weekend! It really is great to see when people come support you and it makes it feel like all your hard work has paid off. Yes, it's a lot to put on so many Ropings and have great calves and arena setups etc.! However, when I have people come up to me and shake my hand, send texts or call and tell me thanks for putting on a great roping it makes it all worth while! It especially makes that 40 hour drive I did to Oregon to get a load of calves last fall worth doing again! However I think I will wait for the snow to melt first! Ha! Ha! I also have to give a huge Thanks to my crew, they work hard and are Awesome!
