Triumph at Ariat World Series Roping in Vegas

The 17th Ariat World Series of Team Roping, proudly sponsored in part by Fay Ranches, concluded its nine record-breaking days on December 9-17 at the South Point Hotel, Arena, Equestrian Center, and Exhibit Hall in Las Vegas. The event began with the Riata Buckle Open to the World, culminating in the #7 Yeti Finale for novice ropers. Demonstrating a commitment to both the sport and community, Fay Ranches played a pivotal role in elevating this year’s event, where an unprecedented $18 million was awarded to team ropers from diverse backgrounds.


The 2023 Ariat WSTR Finale set multiple records with over 4,400 ropers and 5,894 teams participating. Fay Ranches was the headline sponsor for the #13.5 roping, with the winning duo of brothers Daylan & Brendon Frost splitting $222,000 for their stellar performance.

The record-breaking crowds attending the roping and western trade show allowed Fay Ranches brokers to connect with contestants and spectators from all over North America. The brokers attending the event represented eight western states, including Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arizona. 


The company had a meet and greet booth near the main arena so people passing by could grab a copy of Land Investor magazine, highlighting the current listings offered by Fay Ranches. The breadth of knowledge the agents of Fay offer is invaluable, and people stopping by the booth could utilize the networking within Fay Ranches, as the brokers in attendance helped direct people to a Fay Ranches professional licensed in their specific region of interest.


Fay Ranches’ broker, JW Robinson, gave an interesting interview for the title-sponsored roping.


Looking ahead, Fay Ranches is proud to continue its association with the Ariat WSTR, eagerly anticipating the Finale XVIII in Las Vegas, Dec 7-15, 2024.
