Women’s Rodeo World Championship Will Debut In Las Vegas This November

|

Let’s go, ladies! The WCRA and PBR just announced the debut of the Women’s Rodeo World Championship will take place in Las Vegas in November.

This event is being called “first-of-its-kind” by the WCRA, as it’s the first event open to any female athlete in the world that is competing in barrel racing, breakaway roping, and/or team roping.

A champion will be named in each event, along with a Women’s Rodeo All-Around Champion, and the total prize money is a whopping $750,000—at the minimum.

“Working with our partners at PBR to provide female rodeo athletes an opportunity like this is a game-changer,” said WCRA CEO, Gary McKinney. “This historic addition of the Women’s Rodeo World Championship to the WCRA 2020 tour will give female ropers and barrel racers more opportunities, including the ability to compete for big-money payouts.”

The Women’s Rodeo World Championship will be held at Las Vegas’ South Point Equestrian Center from November 3-7, 2020, about a month prior to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, which will take place in December.

From November 3-5, the event will begin with onsite open-qualifier rounds. Then, the top 10 from the qualifier will compete in the Championship from November 6-7.

 

If you can’t be in Vegas for the Women’s Rodeo World Championship, never fear; you’ll be able to watch the event on RIDE-TV and RidePass, the PBR’s Western sport digital network.

Another reason to be excited about women’s Western sports! 2020 is our year, ladies.
