Rope and Run is a premiere team roping and barrel racing event held prior to the Snake River Stampede.

A $400,000 purse makes the Snake River Stampede one of the top stops on the rodeo circuit. This Tuesday, barrel-riders, bullfighters, bronco-busters and their fans will descend on Nampa for the 103rd running of the Snake River Stampede and on Monday's Idaho Matters we'll talk about the legacy of rodeo in the West and more than a century of stampeding in the Gem State.

She is an award-winning journalist and has spent the majority of her broadcasting career in Idaho. Gemma was a television news anchor and reporter in Boise for close to 15 years.
