General Rules

 When the announcer says “flag is up” the team will enter the pen, time will start and the number of the calf to be sorted first will be announced.  A lap timer will be used to time each calf that crosses the start/foul line.    Once the calf is counted, if it returns to the pen it will result in a DQ.

No profanity to be used during or after runs.

No spotting cattle from spectators.

When your team is announced to run, be in the arena and ready to run, excessive delays will result in a DQ.

Each event will start promptly at scheduled times, any riders not ready to ride will result in a DQ.


Contact with the cattle with hands, feet, hats, ropes, bats, reins, or any other equipment, or hazing with whips, hats, or ropes will result in a DQ.  Any unnecessary roughness to horses or cattle or unsportsmanlike conduct will result in a DQ.  If a rider falls off their horse, they may not work the cattle from the ground, they may remount and continue working the cattle.  Any attempt to work cattle before remounting will result in a DQ.  DQ of a team member results in the DQ of the entire team.


Judges rule is final, excessive arguing will result in a DQ
