2023 Riata Buckle

November 2-5, 2023, Lazy E Arena, Guthrie, OK

The Riata Buckle is a team roping futurity program designed to support and incentivize the breeding of elite rope horses.

We are building the future of the roping industry by giving stallion owners and breeders a marketing advantage by increasing the value of the progeny of the horses that participate in the program. And in doing so affecting, defining and creating the rope horse breed.

The program is designed to bring together stallion owners, mare owners, breeders and ropers. While providing ropers of all skill levels and abilities the opportunity to compete and win more money than has ever been available in the roping futurity world.
