Fifteen bonus points will be awarded to a team that has a qualified score in all seven events in the long go. There will be no Tie-downs or Mechanical Hackamore Bits allowed in the arena. If there is a Hackamore Bit or Tie down being used, The Team which that person belongs to will be disqualified. Solid Jawed Bit, Snaffle Bit, Loose Jawed Snaffle, or Hackamore can only be used. No Training on horses while in the arena. All Saddle horns must be slick ( Latigo leather or mule hide only) for all events. No rubber or rope. Any unnecessary roughness, or abuse of any animal in any event will result in elimination of the team in that event. The judges decision is final. No Exceptions.

Only one bronc rein may be used and held onto with one hand.

Ranch doctoring is a three man event. The arena will have two barrels at about 1/3 of the arena. Riders will cut ONE of the designated numbered cattle out of the herd. Designated cow may only be cut from the herd an removed between two barrels. Only one person in the herd at a time. Header cannot throw loop until cow has passed though the barrels. Designated cow may not return to the herd once brought through the barrels, if the cow returns past the barrels you get no time. Legal head catches only ( neck or neck and one front foot, figure eight is OK on one, not two front feet). Illegal head catch may not be dallied. The designated cow can be heeled in far 2/3 of the arena. The vet leaves his horse after header and heeler face and sets the ropes (both front and hind feet) and places a mark on the cow between its eyes. If the cow is jerked down it must be day lighted. The time starts when the first rider passes the designated starting line. No more than 3 loops can be used, one loop per rider. The vet will raise both hands to signal end of time. You can and will be flagged out for any unnecessary roughness.

Each team will be required to brand 3 calves. Time starts when team is ready, there will be a 5 minute time limit. One team member will work on the ground to set ropes on both front and hind feet before branding. The other two members will head and heel the animal. Each roper will head and heel a calf and work the ground. Head catches must be head or head with one front leg. After each calf is branded , the team members will change places. Ropers may not break from a trot until calf is headed. Calf must be headed before heeler can make his catch. The heeler may catch one or both hind feet. The ground man may assist in removing illegal catches or dropped ropes but must return to the designated area before another loop is thrown. As soon as calf is headed and heeled, ground man may leave designated area, throw calf, place head rope on both front feet and , if necessary, place heel rope on both hind feet, while working on calf, iron must be in the bucket.

On the last calf, after the brand is placed, the ground man returns to the designated area and puts the Iron in the bucket for time. Any cattle called fro are yours. If any roper falls from his horse, ground man can only grab rope to avoid accident. Calf then has to released, and if roper is able to remount with no equipment failures then he can re-rope his designated end and team run can be completed. No one except team members, judges and/or JPRR officials will be allowed in arena. Arena director and judges have the final say on any disputes. A 30 second penalty will be assessed for each infraction of the above rules

The rider with rope still on, returns the animal to the catch pen. There will be a 2 ½ minute time limit. The time will stop when the cow is roped and faced up.

A three man team will sort cattle out of a designated group of cattle. There will be 7 different color groups of 7 head each. One rider in the herd at a time. The team must take their color of cattle out of the herd between two barrels. Any cattle not going between the barrels stops your time. Any wrong colored cattle crossing the line of two barrels stops the teams time. The most cattle out in the fastest time wins. There will be a 3 minute time limit.

A 3 man team will enter arena and face away from a group of cattle being let into the arena at the opposite end. The team shall go to the group of cattle, count them through two barrels in the arena and time will stop when designated head counter tells flagger their number.
