The Lafourche Roping Club is an engaging and welcoming group for its members, youth and friends interested in preserving the cowboy way of life.
The Lafourche Roping Club anchors itself in the joys and traditions of our WESTERN CULTURE and HERITAGE by developing and teaching cowboy skills and ranching skills of the present and the past. Skills like riding, roping, livestock training and care all serve as the basis and means to further develop valuable life skills.
Teaching and refining present day cowboy skills to promote participation in amateur rodeo and other amateur equine events. Preparing and encouraging our youth to participate in High School and College sanctioned rodeo events and continued education. Doing the same for the adults of our organization so as to contribute to the preservation of our western culture and heritage.
We exist not only to preserve our past, but to equip each other and our youth to BELONG and develop a deeper sense of SELF-WORTH, RESPECT, EQUALITY, COMPASSION and INTEGRITY to ultimately allow us to CONTRIBUTE to the FAMILIES and COMMUNITY that we are so proud to be part of.
As a FAMILY, bound by the principles for which we stand, the Lafourche Roping Club exists to ENGAGE THE COMMUNITY, to foster and model the true COWBOY WAY OF LIFE and its principles in hopes of ultimately passing on a LEGACY that was passed to us.
