Joel Bach
I was born in California, but raised majority of my life in Texas and currently still live there. I can honestly say that I have been surrounded by rodeo and roping my entire life. My father Allen Bach, has been heeling professionally now for thirty years and has been a huge inspiration and teacher throughout my roping career. Besides roping professionally full-time, I am heavily involved with our family business, Bach Roping and the Smarty Steer. Through Smarty, I have been able to produce and teach roping schools all over the United States and even outside the country in places such as Mexico.
Some personal favorite highlights so far throughout my career have been winning the 2008 Rookie of the Year, winning the 2008 Pendleton Round Up and winning the 2010 Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.
This is my first year wearing custom Greeley Hat Works hats. I can tell you there is a big difference when wearing a quality custom hat. Every fine detail of these hats are made to fit you and your personality. They are durable, individualized, and very comfortable to wear. Trent and his staff are the best at what they do. I would recommend Greeley Hat Works to anyone who is looking for the best of the best when it comes to cowboy hats.
