The vision of the COPWRA is to help create competitive rodeo athletes. In order to do that we can’t accommodate everybody by allowing them to do every event. Based on discussions at our general membership meeting in July, the board had some decisions that needed to be made for the proposed rule changes effective in the 2020 rodeo season. The COPWRA had their annual board meeting in October to discuss further and vote on changes. The decision was made to align the intermediate and senior events to go hand in hand with the Jr High and High School Rodeo Associations. So this mean that our two older divisions (Intermediate & Seniors) will be divided boy/girl. Leaving the two younger divisions (Underage & Juniors) as they are. We realize this may upset some but as a board we feel this is a much needed move in the right direction for the future of our rodeo contestants.
Changes for 2020 Rodeo Season
- Raking every 10 in the barrels and poles, director’s discretion to change this based on given ground conditions
- Running through the gate (Goats, Barrels & Poles) will result in contestant being disqualified in that event. No warnings will be given
- Junior Calf Riding- ride must be a qualified ride (:06 seconds) for the rider to receive a score and any points in placing. No points are given to non-qualified rides
- Junior Sled Breakaway Roping- will have a :60 sec time limit or end of arena whatever happens first
- Sr. Boy Calf Tying- must be two wraps and a half hitch/hooey
- Intermediate Boy’s and Girl’s Events will be split (team roping combined like seniors)
- Intermediate Girl Events: Poles, Barrels, Goats, Breakaway, Team Roping
- Intermediate Boy Events: Goats, Breakaway, Double Mugging Tie Down Roping, Steer Riding, Bareback Riding, Team Roping
- Team Roping–
- Points are “jackpotted header and heelers together”, based off total times, top 10 placing times get points in order of their times then receive correlated points in placing.
- Awards to their highest earned points roping position. If a competitor earns heading and heeling points because they switched positions part way through the season, they will receive year end award in whichever they are highest placing in.
- Dummy Roping-
- The pipe box will set at least 12”from back of the dummy.
- Points will be as follows; 2 points for slick horns, 1 point half head, 1 point neck, no points if entire body of dummy is roped.
- 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.
