2019 is the year that saw The American, the World Champions Rodeo Alliance and now, the Cheyenne Frontier Days, welcome breakaway roping into their folds. But everything that happened this year—the stuff that drew big headlines and the rodeos that saw young girls win tens of thousands in mind-blowing fashion—took decades worth of work, grass roots support and a few women sticking their necks out to advocate for themselves and others

A few of those women who haven’t been silent about the opportunities rodeo committees, sponsors, fans and associations have been missing by not including the ladies? Lari Dee Guy and Hope Thompson. And they’re on The Score today.

Lari Dee and Hope have some 15 WPRA world titles between the two of them, and they’ve cashed hundreds of thousands of checks at the major team roping and breakaway jackpots across the country. In fact, LD just won the Spicer Gripp Breakaway title worth $7,706.

They’re teachers, too, who spend most of the year traveling the country, introducing new students to the sports of breakaway roping and team roping.
