!!!!!Rule Notifications!!!!

Some rule changes were decided on mid-season due to safety concerns (Alcohol & running from outside the gates) and practicality (60 sec vs 15 secs), and that it came to the Board’s attention that three event situations did not have specific wording in the rule book, but have operated on past precedence and will continue to operate this way throughout the 2019 season until a rule addition or change is proposed, discussion is allowed at the General Membership meeting in July, and voted on by Board of Directors in October.

  • Amended in the Rule Book effective for 2019 Season
    • Rider has :60 sec to enter arena on their horse from the time the announcer calls their name (not :15sec) (page 11, #2)
    • No alcohol inside or near the arena (page 7, #17)
    • No running horse from outside of or thru gate ( page 11, #5)
These event situations include:
  • Senior Boy’s Calf Tying: contestants are and have been verbally reminded that ties include two wraps.
  • Parents can be on the track in Underage Goats to catch horse before contestant dismounts without incurring an “assist”  and Junior Boys and Girls Goats parents can be on the track to catch their child’s horse (once the contestant is clear of the horse) and to help Juniors remount.Intermediate and Senior Goats does not allow parents to be on the track at all, not to catch or slow down horse or stop horse from crossing the rope. 
  • Team Roping: past precedence in regards to points given show that points are given to Headers and Heelers separately (10 to fastest Header and 10 to fastest Heeler).  Again, there is no wording for these past, accepted practices and until the general membership meeting in July to add or change the rule book, we will operate according to past precedence in regard to these events.        
If you have a suggestion for COPWRA or Rule Proposal or anything you would like discussed please send to info@copwra.org or submit form on website before July’s rodeo weekend.
