|Marcy Jordan - "I have been to several of Russell's roping clinics. He is very sincere in wanting to help out each and every student. He gives his all with kindness and enthusiasm. He has a very critical eye for what the roper is doing wrong and is able to explain clearly how to improve his/her skills. I would recommend Russel's clinics to any level of roper."|
John Colyer - "In December of 2008, I decided at age 55 to begin team roping and purchased my first rope. January 2009 is when my roping lessons began with Russell Funk. Russell helped me purchase a horse in late January who turned out to be the best first roping horse that anyone could ask for. My lessons continued on the ground and did not include my horse until late March or early April. This gave me plenty of time to get acquainted with my horse plus improve my skills on the ground. Since beginning my lessons with Russell, I have attended roping clinics hosted by big name ropers and none have come close to the quality of instruction that Russell has provided me. Renee has treated me like a member of her family from the first day that I met her and was the voice of calm during times that I was really struggling.
Russell has now helped me purchase my second horse as well as advising me on tack and related equipment required to do my best. Additionally he has provided valuable input on the arena that I hope to complete this summer. He is a phenomenal source of information and never too busy to take my call or answer my questions.
Renee and Russell not only provide very high quality instruction but a family oriented, wholesome environment that is appropriate for old guys like me as well as children of all ages. I spent a lot of time at their arena last year and loved every minute of it. I plan to continue my lessons at the same pace as last year or until they run me off.
Team roping for me is pure recreation and it is unlikely I will be performing at the NFR any time soon, but Renee and Russell have taught me a lot while making it so much fun that I cannot wait to go the next time. If you want to learn to rope, improve your roping, or simply improve horsemanship skills, I could not recommend Russell any more highly."
