Welcome this month to a look at the remuda of a young up-and-coming star in the roping and rodeo world, Garrett Morrow. Garrett, the son of John and Merishia Morrow, is a senior at Lindsay High School, Lindsay, Texas, and is already grabbing attention as a calf roper and team roper who holds his own with the best. His wins include two Ultimate Calf Ropings, North Texas Little Britches Rodeo (NTLBR) Reserve Champion Team Roper, NTLBR Champion Calf Roper, three-time National Little Britches National Qualifier, North Texas High School Rodeo Association finalist, North Texas High School Rodeo Association. Regional Qualifier and many area rodeos and jackpots.

We shouldn’t be surprised that Garrett has great cowboy and roping skills since he has been raised on the family ranch watching his dad rope and work cattle and has been in the saddle since just about the time he was able to sit alone. In the process of garnishing roping honors, Garrett has caught the eye of several coaches of college rodeo programs, each wanting to recruit him for their school. It would be easy to go on and on about Garrett himself, but as always the focus of this column each month is the equine partners that make all we do possible. Garrett uses a remuda that includes four horses: Pinky, Catfish, Buck and “G.”
