From the Women's Professional Rodeo Association World Finals in Waco, TX, Holabird’s Tanegai Zilverberg has been named the 2022 tie-down roping champion.
As reported by Ann Bleiker, Zilverberg is taking home the tie-down roping world title for the first time in her career. She finished the year with $4,155 to take the title from the reigning world titlist Kari Nixon, who finished second with $2,877.
Zilverberg placed third in the first round and won the second round en route to the average championship as well with a time of 52.9 seconds on three.
“As I walk away from the WPRA World Finals 2022, I am extremely grateful for great horses, people, and sponsors,” said Zilverberg in a post to her Facebook page. “They truly make it possible to attend every event I enter.”
“This year I finally walk away World Champ and finals tie-down roper. I roped on three different horses throughout the year, but My brother Zane Zilverberg was nice enough to let me take his amazing calf horse Barley “Mister Mighty Spark” to rope and run barrels (placing 4th) on at the finals.”
“We placed in Round 1 and won Round 2, winning the average. It was very special to win the world and finals on a home raised and trained horse.”
“Barley also got the honor of Rope Horse of the Finals to put a cherry on top!”
