Non-pro side pot:

This event will remain an open event, but in 2022 there will be an added incentive for non pro’s competing with the addition of the non pro side pot.  All NRCHA card holding non pros will be eligible for the side pot.  Side pot payout and information will be posted prior to the show.


Equipment: 

Horses must be shown in a bridle throughout all phases, no tie‐downs will be permitted.  

The traditional bridle with romal must be used. With romal reins, hand is to be around the reins in a fist position with thumb up and no fingers between the reins. In the herd work only, romal reins can be held in one hand. Roping reins are optional in the Steer Stopping.

A rider may show only one horse. An owner may enter more than one horse provided there is a different rider for each entry. No change (substitution) to a horse / rider combination is allowed once the first go has taken place. 

FINALS

10 horse/rider combinations will advance to the finals on the last day of the contest. If a tie advances more than 10, all ties advance. The payout will be adjusted/reworked according to the number of horses in the finals, but the total payout will not change.

Finalists start with a clean slate.

In the event that any finals qualified horse / rider combinations do not compete in the finals (scratch), the horse/rider combinations will still receive a finals check. If there are multiple scratches, the finals placings for the scratched horses will be placed based on their preliminary score.


 

Additional rules and Guidelines:

  • NRCHA Rules will be followed
  • 70% of entry fee goes back into the payout. 
  • Late entries will be accepted with a late entry penalty (25% of the entry fee) until noon the day before the class starts. All late entries will assume “late” draw positions 
  • Non pro’s will lose eligibility by riding a horse they do not own for this competition
  • Electric barrier in the steer stopping
