Ranch Cutting


CLASS WITHIN A CLASS: For Open competitors, awards and paybacks will be calculated separately.

MULTIPLE GOES: A rider may enter this class any number of times, but each go must be on a different horse. Please list the horse's name in parenthesis in the name field. For example: “Bob Roberts (Peanut)”. All goes will qualify for placed awards, but only one score can be counted toward High Point.

Cost includes a $10 payback that will pay ONLY if the class size is greater than ten participants.

ALSO NOTE: Because this class is very popular, additional goes by one participant on different horses will be wait-listed to make room for others until the week prior to the event. Thank you for your understanding.
