The Score — Rich Skelton
Season 3, Ep. 15
Rich Skelton, who is in the midst of hisHeeler's Only Roping Clinic Tour, stopped by The Score Podcast after he spent two days in Colorado's 90-plus degree heat helping heelers elevate their roping on the Bones, on the Heel-O-Matic and on live steers.Fresh on his mind after all that was what every day ropers can do to hone their craft, and The Score host Chelsea Shaffer got to ask him questions about his career and how he's helping ropers across the country through his clinics. Skelton’s eight world titles have absolutely made him a legend, but to me, it’s his accessibility to the everyday roper that makes him stand out among Hall of Famers.

The Score – Jake Long
Season 3, Ep. 14
Kansas native Jake Long has qualified for nine Wrangler National Finals Rodeos, won two Ram National Circuit Finals titles and nearly every major jackpot in the sport. Not to mention he's been on some of the greatest horses in the history of the sport, including three-time PRCA/AQHA Horse of the Year, Colonel.In this odd rodeo season marked by cancelations and postponements, Long sits fifth in the PRCA's world standings with$41,158, heeling for three-time World Champion Clay Tryan—the third Tryan brother he's roped behind.This interview is a rare, candid opportunity with Long, who doesn't always say too much. In this interview, presented by Cactus Ropes, Jake and I talk about his journey over the last few decades that's transformed him into one of the sports greats and a horseman, too.
The Score — 2020 BFI Champions Kal Fuller and Reagan Ward
Season 3, Ep. 13
In case you missed it, Montana's Kal Fuller and Oklahoma's Reagan Ward won $155,000 at the Feist June 21.It was the day before Reagan’s 33rd birthday, and Kal is just 20 years old. They smoked a 6.04-second short round steer at fourth call, then sat at the back end of the red-dirt arena to watch the third callback team of Tyler Wade and Billie Jack Saebens take a plus-five with a leg, see Cody Snow and Junior Nogueira suffer that same fate, then they held their breaths as Pace Freed and Cole Wilson fell just 7 hundreths of a second short of winning the roping. Their victory lap was as unexpected as it was glorious.
The Score — CR Bradley
Season 3, Ep. 12
CR Bradley is one of the American Quarter Horse Association’s winningest ropers in horse show competition, as well as an NFR-qualifying tie-down roper and World Series of Team Roping Finale place.Bradley is originally from Hilliard, Ohio, but he got to the Lonestar state of Texas as fast as he could to pursue a roping career. He took with him a little roan mare his family raised that would eventually make a big splash across the roping world Twister Enola Gay—who carried him from his first AQHA Youth World Championship to the college finals to his first NFR, and eventually carried Tuf Cooper to two gold buckles.Bradley also won the AQHA Super Horse in 2014 as the only owner/breeder/trainer to ever win it on Roanie’s colt, Twisters Enola Rey.The NFR calf roper is spending just as much time heading and heeling these days as he is roping calves, and you can find him at the World Series ropings behind Jackie Crawford and as well as spinning steers at the rodeos.
