The Founder and Owner of RopeSmart, John McCarthy grew up in Billings, Montana. He joined the US Air Force and started his career in the medical field which eventually moved him into the intelligence community. This career placed him in San Antonio, which is where he met his wife and made his new home.
His technical background during his time in the US Air Force, provided him guidance as he jumped into the photography and video industry. This was the seed to what eventually became the foundation of how the RopeSmart equipment came to be.
“Without proper fundamentals you can only hope for random success, with the proper fundamentals you are your own proper limitations.” – John M.
His love and passion for the western lifestyle, was grounded in the sport of team roping. He went through the same challenges everyone else did. John put in the time and effort into other training products, but didn’t get the result out.
He took the tools used in media industry to analyze the greatest ropers to find common denominators amongst these gifted ropers, (angles planes, etc). From this John designed tools and roping dummies that would force a person to develop the proper fundamentals of swings and deliveries for the foundation of their practice.
