Hope Thompson Reflects On Her Success & Prepares for the Women’s Rodeo World Championship

Breakaway Roper, Hope Thompson, is currently the highest earning athlete in the WCRA at $171,000 won.

Hope walked away as the first Women’s Team Roping Champion in 2020, winning $123,000 at the event alone.

“I’m fortunate to get to rope every day, it doesn’t matter if I’m team roping, heading, heeling, breakaway roping, if you put a rope in my hand, I’m one happy girl.” Hope says.

Hope credits a great deal of her success to her extremely skilled horses, Ink and Ace, as well as her team roping horse, Andre, all in which Hope trained herself.

“If you love what you do it’s not much work”, Hope says as she expresses her gratitude towards the many opportunities that are now available in women’s rodeo.

Hope is currently preparing for the Women’s Rodeo World Championship that will take place in Fort Worth, Texas, May 16-18.
