Want to see a grown cowboy cry? Tell any of the greatest team ropers of all time that his daughter won’t have to fight the same fight he has all his life to compete for equal money. While team roping is now a standard event at all professional rodeos, the best team ropers in the world have yet to earn equal money everywhere they compete. Both partners pay association dues, entry fees, fuel and all other expenses—including trucks, trailers and the high-dollar horses it takes to hang at the highest level—and yet they’re still fighting for equal pay.

Daniel Geitner (USA) and his own mount Banks Mill, a 2011 Warmblood gelding of unknown breeding, claimed reserve with a total score of 375.5.
