The first all Canadian team roping team has had an amazing 10 days here at the #WranglerNFR. Header Levi Simpson (riding his horse Fraser) and heeler Jeremy Buhler (riding his horse Rick James) split round 10 with Small/Thorp with a time of 4.3 seconds. That win was enough for them to earn the WNFR Average with a time of 54.9 seconds. Simpson is the 2016 World Champion Header, and Buhler the 2016 World Champion Heeler.
