2023 National Finals Steer Roping
The Top 15 steer ropers in the PRCA based on PRCA | RAM World Standings at the end of the regular season head to their own national championship in November in Mulvane, Kan.
The top 15 steer ropers in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) are set to compete for the coveted National Finals Steer Roping (NFSR) title this weekend at the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas. With a $455,000 purse on the line, the event promises to be an exhilarating showcase of rodeo skills and horsemanship.
The NFSR stands out as a separate event from the renowned National Finals Rodeo (NFR), which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada in December. While the NFR brings together the top performers across all seven rodeo events, the NFSR places the spotlight solely on steer roping, one of the most captivating and fast-paced disciplines in the sport.
Steer roping, often referred to as “the original rodeo event,” tests the roper’s ability to catch and restrain a steer using a lariat and a specially trained steer horse. The event demands exceptional timing, coordination, and teamwork between the roper and their mount, making it a true test of rodeo prowess.
The NFSR is a highly anticipated event for both steer ropers and rodeo enthusiasts alike. The competition is fierce, with each roper vying for the prestigious title and a significant portion of the prize money. The atmosphere is electric, filled with the anticipation of thrilling catches and the camaraderie of the rodeo community.
This year’s NFSR is expected to be particularly exciting, with several world champions and rising stars among the competitors. The event promises to deliver an unforgettable spectacle of rodeo action, showcasing the exceptional skills and determination of the top steer ropers in the world.
So, whether you’re a seasoned rodeo fan or a newcomer to the sport, the NFSR is an event not to be missed. Mark your calendars for November 17-18, 2023, and head to the Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane, Kansas, to witness the culmination of steer roping excellence and witness the crowning of the next NFSR champion.
