In less than 24 hours, 15 of the world’s best breakaway ropers will take on Las Vegas with their sights set on the coveted world championship gold buckle. Rodeo fans and athletes are gearing up for two days of edge-of-your-seat breakaway roping action, as the National Finals Breakaway Roping will take place December 5-6 at the South Point Arena in Las Vegas.
2023 was a monumental year for breakaway ropers. With many professional rodeos adding the event and paying equal money, these sharp-shooter ropers were provided unprecedented opportunities to make a successful living pursuing their passions and dreams. With nearly $165,000 in winnings this year, Shelby Boisjoli leads the pack of highly decorated ropers. NFBR rookies like Hali Williams and Sarah Angelone also will enter their first NFBR within the top five of the world standings.
NFBR veterans like Jackie Crawford, Kelsie Domer, and reigning world champion Martha Angelone, will also look to leave their mark on Sin City once again. Below, is a full breakdown of this year’s lineup, courtesy of the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA).
