Rope Myers was born to be a rodeo cowboy. In 2001, Rope became the World Champion Steer Wrestler, while smashing the NFR arena average and the record for steer wrestling earnings in one year. He is also the 2002 Gold Medalist at the Olympic Command Performance Rodeo. He’s been featured in several national publications, including Sports Illustrated, American Horse, USA Today, Cowboy Sports Entertainment, Western Horseman, and the Rolling Stone Magazine. Recently, Rope and his family were featured on the CBS news program 48 Hours.
In 1995, he married and began regularly attending church services. His wife, Candice, was beginning a Christian Country music ministry, and It didn’t take long to see what the Lord had in mind. In 2004, Rope began a consultant relationship with Sky Ranch Camps, a premier Christian youth camp and retreat center in Van, Texas. He is now at Sky full time, as the Director of Equine Ministries, where his wife, Candice, serves as Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The Myers’ ministry, White Riata, (Candice means “white” and ‘riata’ is Spanish for “rope”) is based in east Texas, where they live with their children, Layton, Holden, Tierney, and Storey
