As my lovely and talented wife, Jasmin, reminds me, men are not the only earthly creatures who participate in team roping events. It is quite common to see ladies, girls and young children compete with talent equal to that of any man. Women are often involved in other western style events, such as barrel racing and so on and over the years have racked up some impressive wins in local, regional and national events of this type.
Being a male and having spent large chunks of my life in male environments, I don't always take into consideration the female side of things, and the contributions of women in all fields of life. I shall try to write more inclusively in the future.
