“This week we caught up with one of my personal heroes, Tammy West White. I remember watching this lady rope at the BFI when I was 9 years old and thinking, “Someday I want to rope like Tammy West!”
Tammy is one of the only women to rope in the PRCA, has made the California circuit finals several times, roped at the BFI 5 times, won the Oakdale 10 Steer, and made the short round at rodeos such as Reno, Greeley, Vernal, and Salinas.
