About Anthony



For most of his life, Anthony has been roping and training rope horses.  As a youngster, he entered Junior Rodeos moving on up the ranks to later on win some of the bigger rodeos and going on the road. 

After marrying and settling down, he concentrated more on training and making new rope horses.

Anthony and "Skeeter"


Today, Anthony owns a fence building company.  Everyday he comes home and rides many of his roping horses and colts he has started.  Son, Cody spent two years in college in Texas, competing on the College Rodeo Team and is currently riding and training horses. While in Texas, the black and white horse that Cody currently rides placed in the George Strait Team Roping.

Wife Lisa owns a riding stable business with her sister in Upstate New York, which has been in her family for over 60 years. She also designs websites for farms and ranches during the winter months. Daughter Ashlea is currently in college and works at the stables during the summer months.

If you would like to call Anthony and talk to him about his horses feel free to do so.  He tries to keep well bred, and nice looking horses to use.

The best time to reach Anthony is after dark, as he stays out in the barn until then.

After losing his horse, Cody went on to rope on Anthony's horse.  He has hauled him to Texas while on the college rodeo team, and since then, out to Arizona, Florida, New York to North Carolina.
