The Horseman's Horseman: Brad Barkemeyer

Montana native Brad Barkemeyer—now based in Scottsdale, Arizona—is a team roper, reined cow horse trainer and instructor for those looking for cowboy common sense in their horsemanship.

Brad Barkemeyer is a horseman’s horseman. 

With a background in the feedlots of Montana’s Big Sky Country, Barkemeyer’s career has spanned disciplines and associations, and he’s far more than just a trainer. Barkemeyer has taught hundreds of youth, amateurs and recreational ropers the finer points of horsemanship, including working with Horse&Rider OnDemand to provide digital instruction to those looking for a tailored experience without the cost of a full-time trainer. 

In this episode of The Score, Barkemeyer talks about his evolution through the team roping and reined cow horse industries and how he balances his love for roping with his busy training schedule.
