Amy Hume and John Hancock came second, Richard Glassford and Spencer Lee third, and Hume and Russell Glassford fourth. The fifth place winners were Audrey Cooper and Clay Cooper.
The talented ropers took home prizes including saddles, buckles, rifles, knives and saddle pads.
In the #11 event, the team that caught one steer fastest was Ryan Hume and Carey Isnardy, with a time of 6.2 seconds, while for the #8 event, it was Lee and Glassford, in 6.78 seconds. These teams had the fasted times roping one steer, but may not have caught another to win the entire event.
