The 2022 American Rope Horse Futurity Association Heading World Champion Rhen Richard is partnering with Roping.com to stream his full rope horse training program, with the first masterclasses launching Oct. 9, 2023. 

The series—with full training sessions with many of A&C Racing and Roping’s top prospects and Richard’s rodeo horses—features hours of at-home practice in the Richard family’s standout facility in Roosevelt, Utah. 

“We are partnering with Roping.com to show ropers what it takes to make the kind of horses it takes to win at every level,” Rhen said. “I take teaching seriously, and showing people the little details that really make all the difference in a program is extremely important to me.” 

Former Resistol Rookie of the Year and futurity trainer Kaden Richard and 2-year-old specialist Trinity Haggard also join Rhen to explain the depth of the A&C Racing and Roping program. Roping.com members will see broodmare pasture walk-throughs reviewing the science behind the crosses A&C Racing and Roping chooses, as well as explanations of conformation and bloodlines on large groups of yearlings set to enter the family’s training program. 

“I don’t think there’s anywhere else ropers can see this many horses of this caliber, with someone like Rhen to walk us through the entire breeding program and reveal so much of their next-level thinking,” Content Director Chelsea Shaffer said. “Rhen’s ability to understand form and function of rope horses is eye-opening, and he explains that thinking in pastures fill of weanlings to in the arena on finished rope horses. This is perhaps our most complete look yet at a program of this caliber.” 

The Richards join other ARHFA World Champion Tate Kirchenschlager and Dakota Kirchenschlager, as well as the top-earning futurity ropers of all time, Trevor Brazile and J.D. Yates, on Roping.com. Roping.com is now the home of the sport’s leading breeding and training programs—the Relentless Remuda, DT Horses and A&C Racing and Roping
