Joan Wells

To watch Joan, the 1979 Women’s World Champion Trick Roper, perform is to witness an authentic link to the early Wild West shows. Her interest in roping began in childhood, when, with coaching from a cousin, Joan began performing at fairs, rodeos and on television. Devoted to the art, she teaches clinics and writes articles on roping to help preserve a vanishing cultural feature of the West.
