how to qualify

Below you will find associations and roping's that will be sending their champion to rope in Vegas. You must win the association year-end or win 1st in the roping. If the first place winner can not commit to their spot, we will drop down until the spot is filled. Should a lady double qualify, you will represent your event that was first qualified.

 

This list is not complete or final. If you have any other associations or ropings that you feel should be represented, please feel free to contact us. Remember, the association or roping can not have any handicaps or invitations whatsoever. If you qualify for Rope For The Crown, it is because you did it on an open women's platform. Examples of associations not eligible would be- NIRA or High School Champion, due to the champion only competing against their age competition. Also, Ropings such as the Windy Ryon or Spicer Gripp because they are invitational.
