• A legal catch for all Extreme Ranch Rodeo events are: full head, figure eight, one horn, one horn and head, horns only. (No front leg can be in loop)
• In any event where the steer must be headed and heeled, the head rope must be thrown first. Then the steer can be heeled, but it must be heeled from the rear of the steer. The ropes must be pulled tight and horses facing the steer.
• You cannot dally, hold or restrain a steer with an illegal catch (i.e. body loop, front leg or back leg) during the event or a no time will be given.
• A steer cannot be roped unless standing on all four feet.
• All roping must be done from horseback and thrown, not placed on the cow.
• Cattle are not to be abused by excess choking down and dragging (this will be determined by the judges). If the judge feels abuse is excessive, then a “DQ” will be given for that event.
• No outside assistance. If the equipment isn’t brought into the arena with you once the event starts, you may not retrieve it or be handed it from the outside.
• Cattle can be roped anywhere in the arena, after they have crossed the foul line.
• If a team has a question in regard to a ruling, score or time, the team leader of the team can appeal to the Riders Captain; who will then relate the appeal to the booth judge.
• Ropes can be transferred to another rider from horseback or from foot, as long as the steer was roped from horseback at the start.
• All scores and times during the rodeo are unofficial and subject to change, due to mistakes found by judges and Riders Captain.
• Re-rides are only given if judges deem it to be necessary. Any penalties enacted in the fouled ride will be transferred to the re-ride.
• The next team up has a limited amount of time to enter the arena. After 1 minute, the arena judge can start the time if the team isn’t in the arena (unless held up by the gate man for a safety issue or judges meeting).
• In the event that a rider is injured or called out on an emergency during the rodeo, then that team must replace that rider with another member of a team or someone on standby. If by replacing that team member it puts only one original member left on the team, then that team could win day money, but would not be allowed to add to the team’s overall points for that rodeo. The emergency must be okayed by the judges and rider’s captain. Also. The replacement cannot break any of the team rider’s rules.
• If a trash cow has a rope on it (because of being wrongly roped or accidentally picks one up) it does not have to be removed for time to stop.
• Trash cow 15 second penalty is given when 4 or more trash cows are across the fowl line at the same time.
• In the event we are releasing the cattle from the chute the team will be standing in a designated starting box. Time will start when judge drops the flag.
