Tyler Wade and Jake Long teamed up to win the 2023 Danny Dietz Memorial Classic.

The Danny Dietz Memorial Classic’s Twisted X Open and ProAm ropings will stream live on Roping.com, giving fans and ropers access to the event that showcases the top open ropers in the country before they leave for the summer run. 

Equinety, an easy-to-feed but game changing amino acid supplement, is proudly sponsoring the event and the Roping.com livestream. Throughout the year, Equinety sponsors The Team Roping Journal’s monthly coverage of veterans and first responders in the sport of team roping as a way to honor the men and women who serve. 

The Danny Dietz, in its 15th year, raises money for special operators in all branches of the military and first responders injured in the line of duty, as well as surviving family members of those lost. To date, the event has raised almost $1 million for the 501c3. 

Last year, eventual World Champion Tyler Wade teamed up with Jake Long to win the roping in 30.28 seconds on five head, and this year top teams will rope in the pick one draw one for $600 (or just pick one for $300) with $25,000 added. 

Pros must pair up with an amateur roper to compete in the ProAm afterward as well, in the three head roping capped at a 4.5.
