A few of the most common rope tricks that these trick ropers for hire execute are the “butterfly,” “flat loop” and “vertical loop.” Meanwhile, more complicated tricks that are often performed as well include the “merry-go-round,” “ocean wave,” “spoke jumping,” “Texas skip,” “wedding ring” and “zig-zag.”
This form of Western entertainment can fit well in several events, indoors and out, since all that is needed is a performer and some rope. They just need enough space for the rope to do its magic.
Common events that trick ropers are brought to include, of course, rodeos and Western-themed gatherings but also any type of festival and other large-scale event, especially considering that trick roping is a notable part of Texan culture.
Do note that despite many of EPIC’s trick ropers having extensive experience performing these types of tricks while incorporating animals, there will be no animals during these performances. However, this helps significantly increase the types of venues and events where they may perform.

No, while our ropers have performed around animals (mostly horses and cattle) this act does not include any live animals.
Any large event where you want to wrangle up some guests. Trick ropers are great for rodeos, western themed events, festivals, and other large scale events!
Large, unobstructed areas are best for this performance. The ideal space would be at least 15×15’. For larger rope circle tricks the performer will require up to 20-25’ of space.
