Largest Single Women’s Pro Rodeo Event Payout in History-Kimes Ranch Million $ Breakaway

WestWorld of Scottsdale, AZ ~ November 27-30, 2024 

The fastest growing event in rodeo will take center stage November 27-30th at the Inaugural Kimes Ranch Million $ Breakaway held at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Arizona. An unprecedented million dollar purse will be paid out in a 10 round competition consisting of the top 10 breakaway ropers in the world standings plus 15 qualifiers. Daily trade show, nightly awards ceremonies, as well as Friday and Saturday concerts will round out this momentous event.

“We know there has been a huge push to have the breakaway ropers on the big stage, roping for equal money under the bright lights. I believe that is still the ultimate goal for everyone, but until that happens, we at Kimes Ranch wanted to create an event that would provide the excitement, the recognition, and the purse that these breakaway athletes deserve,” says Amanda Kimes, Vice President of Kimes Ranch.

Josie Conner, 2x WNFBR qualifier and Kimes Ranch endorsee, is one breakaway roper that plans to be roping in Scottsdale in November. “Kimes Ranch took a chance on me, at 16 years old, before I even started my professional career.  From day one, their vision and support for the Western industry was so clear to me. Today, they are taking what may be, one of the biggest steps in the improvement of women’s Breakaway roping. This monumental event will give Breakaway ropers a chance at a one million dollars, payout. Think about that for a second… an event, exclusively for female ropers, that will pay out over a million dollars. I am thankful to Kimes for giving us the opportunity to compete at this event and proud to be aligned with a company like this.”

The venue for the Kimes Ranch Million $ Breakaway-WestWorld of Scottsdale-is a premier, internationally recognized equine event center at the foot of the McDowell Mountains, just 30 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. A stunning location, Arizona’s famous winter weather, and the top breakaway ropers in the world will make for an unforgettable five days of elite competition.
