The top 15 breakaway ropers as of Sept. 30, will compete for prize money of $250,000 during the two day, 10-round performance. Martha Angelone, who will be making her third appearance at the NFBR, will lead the way as the No. 1 ranked roper and she will be looking for her first world title. She was the reserve world champion in 2020, the first year the NFBR was held in Arlington, Texas.

NFBR fans can also take advantage of the current room and ticket package that South Point Hotel and Casino is offering. The package includes a two-night stay – Nov. 29-30 in a deluxe guest room and two general admission tickets to both NFBR performances. The package costs $299 and can only be purchased by calling 866-796-7111 and mention offer code BREAKPK. Please note these rooms can not be extended past Nov. 30.

“We are excited to welcome the ladies of the WPRA and their fans to the South Point Arena & Equestrian Center for this world championship event,” said Ryan Growney, General Manager of the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa. “This will be an exciting event to kick off all the NFR festivities as there is no faster event in rodeo than breakaway roping.”

The 2020 National Finals Breakaway Roping took place at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, in conjunction with the NFR and Jackie Crawford was crowned the world champion. In 2021, the NFBR took place in Las Vegas at the Orleans Hotel and Casino and was won by Sawyer Gilbert.

Women’s Professional Rodeo Association

The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) is the oldest women’s sports organization in the country. The Association started in 1948 with a group of Texas ranch women who wanted to compete as well as add a little color and femininity to the rough-and-tumble sport of rodeo. A major move at the time, 38 women met in a hotel in San Angelo, Texas, on February 28, 1948, to change the way they were being treated in the male-dominated world of rodeo. These women banded together to create the very first professional sports association created solely for women by women – the Girls Rodeo Association (GRA). The GRA began with 74 original members with 60 approved contests with a total payout of $29,000. In 1981, the GRA changed its name to the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). Today, it is an association with more than 3,000 members, over 1,700 events and payouts totaling over $7 million. The WPRA, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., provides opportunities for women across the United States and Canada to compete in the timed events of barrel racing, team roping, breakaway roping, and tie-down roping. For more information on the WPRA and a list of events visit www.wpra.com.
