Dynamite Arena, 1973

Jim Riley hosted Tuesday and Thursday practice sessions, then after the practice had a two-for-$10 jackpot, holding back a third of the pot for his efforts.

Ropers flocked to Dynamite to rope 700-pound steers—corriente cattle that were broke to lead. Riley bought steers that came over from Mexico as 4- or 5-year-olds, who spent most of their lives south of the border staked out in backyards so they didn’t run away. They might have trouble fitting in the chutes, but they were still decent to rope because they knew how to lead, said Riley’s nephew and eventual Dynamite owner, Ron Treat, chuckling.

“Things weren’t controlled by the number system back then,” Treat explained. “But a contractor had to protect his people. There was no way to do anything about it other than tell certain guys they couldn’t rope because you couldn’t keep your steady customers. So you’d have junior and senior ropings, and minimum-age ropings to figure out ways to cut the top guys out.”

A couple of days late with this post but what a fun Friday at Dynamite Arena roping in the 10.5

Deuce was sure a super good boy and let me do my job. Entered twice and made it to the short go with both of my partners and won 2nd with Clay Hendrix and managed to win fast time in the short go with Clyde Gasser. Gosh those guys can sure heel!!!

As always, thank you to JW Brooks Custom Hat Company for making the best hats out there. Excel Supplements for keeping my horses feeling their best. Absolutely loving my head rope by Cactus Ropes and since it was a cold as all get out that morning, I was sure thankful for my wildrag which had me styling thanks to Range-Rags Wildrags. Last but absolutely not least….THANK YOU to Tammy Radcliff-Smith for being my absolute biggest fan and coming with me to hang out, cheer me on and perfect her videoing skills 😘

Dynamite Arena

Dynamite Arena has been operating since the early 1970s when Jim Riley first started his twice-weekly jackpots. We continue that tradition today operating from November through April with our Senior Wednesdays, Masters Fridays and Dynamite Sundays. We also host a number of specialty ropings throughout the season including the Jake Rice Memorial and St. Patrick's Day Rope for the Green & Gold. We are also home to the annual Title Fights-one of the best World Series of Team Roping special fees qualifiers in the West.

Sitting on 12 pristine desert-acres in Cave Creek, Ariz., we are conveniently located just north of Phoenix and easily accessible from across the valley. In 2014, Dynamite got a facelift for the first time in years. Updates included the new Wrangler Warm-Up Arena, the BEX Zone heeler area, larger boxes and revamped lead-up chutes. Our Cantina was voted as "best cook shack" by ropers in Arizona, and we have to agree—the food is phenomenal!

In 2015 our weekly ropings averaged 300-350 teams. We host ropers from 12- to 80-years-old and welcome competitors from all across the country and Canada. There's something for everyone at Dynamite Arena. We award numerous buckles, saddles and other great prizes throughout our winter season. We run anywhere from 400-500 head of our own Corriente cattle for the 21,000 teams that will back into the box at Dynamite Arena each season.
