Contestants must be behind the alleyway gate when their name is called by the announcer, those with problem horses may come from the side alley from the warm up barn, but must be checked in and ready when their name is called. Any contestant that is in either of the side holding pens when their name is called to compete WILL be disqualified. Judges will be monitoring every run for ground rule violations and all judge’s decisions will be FINAL! Any questions concerning the ground rule should be addressed with gate personnel prior ahead of time.
