Tie-down roping, formerly known as calf roping is the classic old west ranch chore. It is now one of the most competitive of rodeo events. Tie-down ropers compete against each other and the clock for the prize money.

2012 WNFR Tie-Down Roping Average Winner

Adam Gray!

Adam's third trip to the NFR proves to be a winner! Adam grew up on a ranch in Seymour, TX and started riding horses when he was 2 years old. He had no fear of horses and always wanted to be around them. At 4-years old Adam would go out to the range (unassisted) take the horse to the fence, climb up the fence and get on the horse bareback. When asked at age 6 “what do you want to be when you grow up?” his reply, “I want to star in a rodeo and qualify for the NFR in Las Vegas”.

Adam has achieved this dream of qualifying for the NFR starting in 2009 and adds a Roping Average win in 2012. Adam isn't done yet, stay tuned.

UPDATE: Adam wins the 2012 Texas Rodeo Circuit Finals!
