Making a Living With a Rope: The Hope T Story

Season 1, Ep. 22

"It is time. It's time that a woman can make a living with a rope." -Hope Thompson

This is one episode you don't want to miss. WPRA World Champion, NFBR Qualifier, CNFR Champion, and All-Around roping legend, Hope Thompson talks about how she got involved in the sport of rodeo, her journey as a competitor and a female through the roping world, and gives some absolutely killer advice to the next generation. She shares all of this after winning nearly $60,000 at the Women's Rodeo World Championship (WRWC) in Fort Worth, Texas, on May 16-18.

Hope is real, honest, and everything you could love to root for in a champion.
