Testimonials

When I started to work with Bret, he focused on working with my ability. He gave me a baseline. Now, I slow down to go faster, and I could not be happier with the results.

Pete, from Canada
TotalTeamRoping.com works. It works for me every time I rope, no matter if it is in the practice pen or at the World Series Roping Finals. I had FUN and I WON, but it’s not just about the money.

Meet Our Team

Bret Beach – Team Roping Champion

Bret, co-founder of TotalTeamRoping.com is a 3-time qualifier in the National Finals Rodeo, twice for Heading and once for Heeling. His Bob Fest Invitational win has been his favorite overall achievement.

Through his lifetime love of the Team Roping sport, Bret decided that training should be available to everyone. Normally, in order to train with the best, you go to a 2-3 day training school. Now, that knowledge can come to you over the internet so you can learn at your own pace, in your own environment, and at your own level. Not only that, but you can now train from ALL of the top instructors and World Champions in the sport.

Bret, currently living in Boerne, Texas, actually grew up in Gilbert, Arizona and has been competing as long as he can remember. His first competition was when he was 6 years old. 45 years later he is still humbled and gracious about all the professionals and competitors he knows and has made true friendships with over the years.

His boys are both featured as students in some of TTR’s first training videos. With Bret being an expert instructor in both heading/heeling, they don’t have far to go to get plenty of great advice! Now, we all know that every once in a while there is a break in the action and when that occurs Bret likes hunting deer and elk as well as fishing.

Clay O’Brien Cooper – Team Roping Champion

You don’t get into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame by merely sitting in your saddle. Clay will tell you every win was a special one for him. He’s been a 7-time World Champion Heeler, has had 25 NFR qualifications, been a 3-time NFR Champion, a 3-time Reserve All Around Champion, a 3-time AQHA World Champion, a 2-time BFI Champion, a 2-time George Strait Team Roping Champion, a 4-time Dodge National Circuit Finals Champion, a 2-time Texas Circuit Champion, a 6-time Turquoise Circuit Champion, and a 2-time PRCA Tour Finale Champion. Clay started Junior Rodeo at the age of 7 and has been competing and winning ever since. Actions certainly speak louder than words!

Clay’s current home is in Gardnerville, Nevada. He was born in Arizona but spent most of his childhood years on the family ranch in the San Fernando Valley close to Los Angeles. His stepfather, Gene O’Brien, worked as a wrangler on western movies and television shows such as Gunsmoke and Bonanza. Those early years also spurred a little acting out of Clay as well. When Clay was nine years old he landed the role of the youngest and smallest cowboy in The Cowboys starring John Wayne.

Hobbies for Clay turn to a more spiritual nature. Clay has been a member of Silverado Cowboy Church under Cowboy Ministries with Dr. Dave Simmons and his wife Kathleen for 12 years and co-authored a monthly Christian article called Pressing On for ten years.

Charles Pogue – Team Roping Champion

Charles has been a Heading Pro since 1987. He has been a 3-time BFI Champion and has qualified for the NFR 15-times. He considers his Dad, Bill Pogue, to be his greatest influence.

Bill actually built an indoor arena in Ringling, Oklahoma, where Charles grew up and still lives. Growing up around rodeo all your life just makes it a natural for you to start young and Charles started working on his skills at the age of 8. Throughout high school and college he knew Team Roping was going to be his life-long passion and that’s been his focus ever since. Pogue is part of the Prairie Circuit, a PRCA circuit that covers Oklahoma, Nebraska and Kansas.

Pogue’s high level of mental focus is what makes him stand out as one of the Headers to watch and learn from. He’ll work on specific skills and hone in on how to improve each and every time he comes out of the chute. Like all of our instructors, his love of learning is a journey and he always continues to learn, improve, perfect, and pass his tips and techniques along to others. Charles always believes in challenging yourself, as much fundamentally as mentally.

Charles and his wife have two children. You’ll probably see both parents at any time cheering their kids on at their sporting events. The oldest may become a part of the Team Roping sport as well, according to Dad has started a little riding and roping , but time will only tell!

Charles actually interviewed for his bio while he was out elk hunting so it stands to reason that this is a major pastime when he’s not out Team Roping (he also enjoys mule deer hunting as well).

As the son of world-champion team roper Mike Beers (1984), it’s no wonder header Brandon Beers would become a 4X State Champion Team Roper, named PRCA Rookie of the Year 2005, 2005 Resistol Rookie of the Year, and hold multiple NFR Qualifiers. Plus, Brandon and his teammate Jim Ross Cooper of Monument, New Mexico, placed third at the much-celebrated Bob Feist Invitational in Reno (June 2013).

Proud to be a Professional Rodeo Cowboy, Brandon lives in Powell Butte, Oregon with his wife Kimber and their new baby boy Baelor Leonard Beers, born April 26, 2015. He also sells roping cattle as a cattle broker for the Longview Ranch in Kimberly, Oregon, the same town where his grandparents have been cattle ranchers for years.

Team roper (header) JoJo LeMond was born September 26, 1982 in Roswell, New Mexico. JoJo joined the PRCA in 2002, but it was how he overcome such obstacles as a mild stroke and a rattlesnake bite in 2009, plus a fire at his ranch in West Texas a couple of years later, that makes JoJo the epitome of endurance.

A two-time competitor at the “Iron Man of Rodeo” Timed Event Championship in Guthrie, JoJo also holds two WNFR Qualifications, a DNCFR qualification (2009), two Tour Finale qualifications, and the 2008-2009 Championship. In 2010, for the third year in a row, he qualified for the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas; though his best finish was at the 2009 NFR, when he finished the year as the world’s fifth-ranked header in team roping.

Today, JoJo lives in Andrews, Texas, with his wife Blair and their three children. Though he’s given up his career as a full-time rodeo contestant, he still loves to rope and teaches every chance he gets.

A member of PRCA since 2003, heeler Travis Graves holds the 2013 PRCA World Title, and has qualified for WNFR five times (2008, 2010-13). Additional wins include Cody (Wyo.) Stampede, Clovis (Calif.) Rodeo, the Walker County Fair & Rodeo (Huntsville, Texas) and Butterfield Stage Days PRCA Rodeo (Bridgeport, Texas), with fellow Team Hesston teammate Kaleb Driggers, and the Tulsa (Okla.) State Fair PRCA Rodeo.

A native of Jay, Oklahoma, Travis says his dad was a team roper, so it was a sport he grew up with. In fact, he won the 2001 International Finals Youth Rodeo heeling title. Today, Travis and his wife, Tamika, (married June 11, 2005) have one son, Tee, born November 5, 2012.

Chad was born February 3, 1981, in Nashville, Tennessee, and currently resides about an hour northwest in Clarksville. As a toddler, he watched his father Bobby roping calves, and was soon swinging a rope too. With practice and dedication, Chad was a competitive team roper throughout his youth, and at age 15, added sporadic tie-down roping runs. In fact, he won the Tennessee State High School Rodeo championships in team roping from 1996-99 and tie-down roping in 1998-99. A few years later, moving into the PRCA was a natural progression.
