Those with problem horses can send another person to check them in, but we must know you are present. 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.

Exhibitions & Training Sessions:
No exhibitions will be sold prior to the event. No call-ins for exhibitions. Must be in line onsite to sign up. Each person may sign up for themselves and one other person. Thursday exhibitions go on sale at 2:00 PM on Thursday at the alleyway. Exhibitions have a 60 second time limit or a $10 fine will be incurred payable before you run!

Training Sessions will go on sale online on Monday, May 29 through NOON on Wednesday, May 31 for $20 per horse. Remaining sessions after online sales may be purchased onsite at the alleyway beginning at 2:00 PM on Thursday. Training Sessions are 25 minute sessions limited to 20 horses per session to ride and work the barrels at will together as a group. You can go through the barrels as many times as you wish during the 25 minute session. Please be courteous to others in your session! If you wish to ride more than one horse in a session, you will need to purchase an additional spot in that session and each rider is limited to a maximum of 2 horses per session. Each horse should only be ridden in ONE session unless the sessions do not fill.

Exhibitions & Training sessions are NOT guaranteed for everyone.
