The goal: rope a goat as fast as you can…with the help of an actual cowboy.

PCRA rodeo contestants were paired up with 27 goat roping contestants to win bragging rights and a custom leather-bound HOT Fair & Rodeo binder.

After making it through the qualifying round, the top lasso went to Josh Switzer with DMAR Concrete with winning time of 8.1 seconds.

KWTX’s Rissa Shaw came in third place this year with a time over 15 seconds.

She came in second place in 2017.
