Did you miss the BFI Week livestream? Roping.com has all the action from the 2024 Bob Feist Invitational and you can watch it anywhere on any device.

From no-crossfire heel shots to the World Champs finally winning on six head to one of the greatest holdouts in all-girl roping, you can watch it all today.

The Feist

On Saturday, March 30, Kaleb Driggers and Junior Nogueira entered up with 124 other teams to compete for more than $600,000 in prize money and the chance to claim the coveted and, thus far, elusive championship title from The Feist. Watch them win their hard-earned victory over six head against wolfy reachers and untethered heelers freed from crossfire regulations.

Hooey Jr. Open

The day prior, Arizona young gun Ketch Kelton took first place for $50,000 and second place for another $25,00 in the Hooey Jr. Open with the equally impressive talents Denton Dunning and Nicky Northcott on the heels, respectively.

Kelton has been cleaning up and is hot off claiming his second Jr. Ironman title at the 2024 Cinch Timed Event Championship, which is also available on demand on Roping.com.

Charlie 1 Horse All-Girl

Jump to the end of the 2024 BFI Week, and fans of women in rodeo got to watch legendary and World Champion ropers alike do battle at one of the greatest holdouts in all-girl event history. The win was seized by reining champs Kenzie Kelton (sister to Ketch) and Whitney DeSalvo, but seeing DeSalvo then win second place heading for Kelsie Domer was a lesson in real roping talent.
