How do you know you partners? I’ve roped with Derrick at goat ropings and jackpots, and I won the #13 with my dad. We used to rope together a lot when I was younger, and we went on a dry spell for about three years, and we finally got it back together. Braden—I high school rodeo with him, he’s my team roping partner. We rope together a lot and go to a lot of jackpots.
