At the Maverick Ranch Rodeo, sixteen teams competed for top team, top hand, top horse and event awards. “The branding was important for us at Cimarron because it was tough. There were very large calves that had to be roped by two feet and two feet only, and there was no loping in the herd,” says team captain Ryan McCoy. “The team is made up of guys from a wide range of ages who have worked together or for each other for many years. You really need guys that are very versitile on great horses that can rope.” In March of 1995, a group of people from across the western United States created the Working Ranch Cowboys Association. WRCA produces the World Championship Ranch Rodeo as a means to showcase the skills of the working ranch cowboy and to raise funds for the WRCA Foundation.The WRCA works to promote ranching on a National and International level and to preserve the lifestyle of the working ranch cowboy.

He had a good bronc ride and then got to rope in each event which led him to win the top hand award.
