On February 17, 15 athletes from the R.O.P.E.R. (Riding Opportunities Promoting Exceptional Riders) team participated in the 20th Annual Inclusive Riding Event held at the Stock Show and Rodeo. During the exhibition, the equestrian athletes had the opportunity to show off their skills and enhance their techniques on horseback. The R.O.P.E.R. team used this event as a scrimmage for their upcoming Spring Games; events included: Team Relay, Pole Bending and Barrel Racing. After the competition, riders enjoyed an awards ceremony and celebration. Special thanks to the Appaloosa Horse Club, Randi Yocum, the SALE Horse Show office members, Sherri Mell, R.O.P.E.R, and all the volunteers for teaming up to provide this extraordinary opportunity for our  San Antonio area equestrian athletes.
