Michael Jones

Michael Jones, a five-time NFR qualifier, didn’t grow up in rodeo, but his

family studied the game and entered the industry hoping to bring a new spin to the practice pen. In 1989, 10 years before Michael would join the ranks of the PRCA, his dad David, mother Linda and he developed the first science-based, bio-mechanical team roping training system.
Michael used this system making headlines in 2001 winning the Pace Picante ProRodeo Chute-out in Las Vegas, qualifying him for the Olympic Command Performance Rodeo the following year in Farmington, Utah, during the Winter Olympic Games. He would go on to win the NFR average title in 2004 and became the first to rope a steer in 3.7 seconds in the Thomas and Mack.
His style helped revolutionize how heelers approached the game, changing the mindset of a heeler from a defensive type of roper to an offensive roper. This approach can now be seen in heelers competing today.
