Welcome to DRTPA!

2022 is in the books and what a great year it was for producers and members alike.  DRTPA continues to strive to offer quality shows in a family friendly environment.  We had several new producers this year and are looking forward to the continued support of our new producers and new/returning members.

The 2022 Finals were held at the Ike Hamilton Expo Center in West Monroe, Louisiana, December 1-4, 2022.  Thanks to all the member participation throughout the year and at the 2022 Finals, the Board of Directors were again able to award an 80% payback at the Finals.  The 2022 Finals ran 1784 first go teams with paybacks and awards totaling $220,374

This was our second year to offer year end saddles for our rated competitors; and the races did not disappoint. As the season drew to an end there were a few races that were neck and neck and the winners were not determined until that last show was in the books.  Awards were presented to the Champion, Reserve Champion, and 3rd Place high point riders for the year in each rating classification.

Our Youth Auction raised $5,520 for the 2023 Finals, thanks to the donations made by our members and sponsors.  With the funds raised last year we were able to purchase awards, add $2,100 to the youth classes, and payout an additional $100 to each of 41 youth participants at the 2022 Finals.  Youth riders do not have to qualify to ride in the youth classes at the Finals as long as their parent or guardian has met the qualifications to participate.

The Show Schedule for 2023 has been posted and will be updated as more shows are scheduled.  You can check it out  under Schedule of Events.   You only have to attend four (4) shows and ride a minimum of ten (10) times in each of the shows to qualify to participate in the 2023 DRTPA Finals.

Be a part of the 100 RIDE PENNING & SORTING CLUB
Our ever popular “100 Ride Club” events had a total of 38 participating riders at the Finals.  As an added incentive to our “100 Ride Club” qualifiers for the 2023 show season, those members reaching 100 rides will receive a $2.00 credit to their show bill at the 2023 Finals for every qualifying ride made during the 2023 show season. 

Dixie Region Team Penning Association is very excited with the growth of our Regional Association. We hope you will come join us for an exciting 2023 DRTPA season and a Finals of Great Paybacks, Awards, Banquet, and some of the greatest people in the team penning and sorting sport. For new members we look forward to you becoming a part of the Dixie Region Team Penning family, and for current members we can’t wait to see you again during the coming show year. Safe Travels to You All.
