"Pearl" has won AQHA world championships in amateur tie-down roping in 2006 and 2007. In 2008 and in two years previously, she placed third in the event at the World Show, and she has also placed in senior tie-down and amateur breakaway roping at the World Show. In 2006, Pearl was AQHA's year-end high-point amateur tie-down roping horse, and the open high-point tie-down roping mare.
