Alongside the PBR World Finals, the Women’s Rodeo World Championship, is culminating this weekend at AT&T Stadium.

Following elimination rounds at Cowtown Coliseum this week, the women will compete in three primary events: barrel racing, breakaway roping, and team roping. There are “Challenger” and “Pro” categories; loosely, the Pro category is for women with higher lifetime earnings in rodeo.

The women’s championship will be at 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 18 in Arlington, with tickets starting at $29. That ticket also covers the first and second rounds of the men’s championship competition.

The current all-around points leader in women’s rodeo is Martha Angelone of Stephenville; she was also the Team Roping Header champion last year with partner Jackie Crawford. The pair have 21 WPRA World Championships between them. Makenzie Mayes is considered a barrel racing favorite.
