The WPRA And Calgary Stampede Announce New Qualifying Event

|

Calling all Breakaway Ropers and Barrel Racers! Have you dreamed of competing among the best of the best in Calgary? If so, this exciting announcement may be for you!

The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA), recently announced a new and exciting opportunity to compete for an exclusive spot at ‘The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth’– the Calgary Stampede.

The inaugural WPRA Western Region Barrels & Breakaway competition will take place in Salina, UT April 11-14. This brand-new, high-caliber event is open to barrel racers and breakaway ropers from the WPRA across the United States and Canada. The primary event for the weekend will be the Calgary Stampede qualifier.

Competitors will have the chance to enter the Calgary qualifier if already entered in the WPRA Card or Permit Only race as well as the WPRA Breakaway. The top two finishers in the average standings in the Calgary qualifier barrel race and breakaway roping not already qualified will earn a spot to compete in their respective events at the 2024 Calgary Stampede. Only 30 ladies in barrel racing and 30 in breakaway roping will get the honor to compete in July in Calgary.

In a release from the WPRA, the association explained, “The Calgary Stampede, a longtime partner of the WPRA, has always worked diligently with our association to provide as many opportunities as possible for our members to qualify into their prestigious event,” said Jimmie Munroe, WPRA President. “It’s very exciting to collaborate with them on a qualifier here in the United States. We hope that many of our members will take advantage of this great opportunity.”

The ‘Greatest Show On Earth’ will take place July 5-14 in Calgary. For more information, please visit the WPRA website.
