G.R. Schiavino is the managing editor of The Team Roping Journal. In 2017, she received a Western Heritage Award from the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for her story “Warriors to Ride the River With,” published in American Cowboy magazine. More recently, Schiavino was a finalist for the American Horse Publication’s Equine Media Awards for her story “Beating the Odds” in The Team Roping Journal. Most recently, Schiavino was spied swinging a rope in ranchy settings. She’s a far cry from entering up, but she thinks there might be something to this whole roping deal.
