Fair Park Coliseum

Team Roping

Just in time to kick-off the State Fair of Texas are the 2018 pre-Fair equine events. This month-long lineup offers a series of horse shows featuring teams and riders from all over the nation. Located in the Fair Park Coliseum and the Livestock Judging Pavilion, events begin August 3 and will take place every weekend through September 16. With the exception of the UPRA Rodeo Performance, all shows are free to the public and offer fun entertainment for the entire family.

A rodeo favorite, team roping originated on ranches back when cowboys needed to treat or brand large steers and performing the task proved too difficult for one man. Today, team roping requires close cooperation and timing between two highly-skilled ropers and their horses. Team ropers must correctly rope the front end and hind legs of a steer. Winners are determined by teams with the best time.

All times and locations are subject to change. Ending times will depend on number of exhibitors entered in each show.
