The WTRA was created and established by Barbara Kenney at a roping event put on by the Riverside Rancheros (Riverside, Calif.) in 1980.

The new season for the Women’s Team Roping Association (WTRA) is underway. The association is open to female ropers residing in California, Oregon and Nevada. WTRA standings are determined by money won, throughout the year, at any team roping competition. Win sheets showing your earnings for each roping are mailed in by you to the WTRA Secretary.

There are five divisions; A, B and C Leagues, Heeling and Rookie. First year members are Rookies and are placed in Leagues the second year based on money won the previous year.

At year-end, saddles are awarded to the winner of each League, buckles to reserve in each league, top 10 awards in each league, etc.

Most ropings advertised in an eligible publication, taking place in CA, NV, OR, or AZ will count towards the standings. It doesn’t matter who you win the money with, male or female, it counts! Example: USTRC, World Series of Team Roping, ACTRA, WCRA, R4R, jackpots, etc.

Exceptions: Winnings from any national finals team roping, in any state, in any association and rodeos, will not count.
