NEW RULES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY


Change R9.3.3.8 Fouled Bull Rider. If a contestant is fouled in the Bull Riding event and he declares or is disqualified prior to the expiration of the (8) second time requirement, he will be entitled to a re-ride. If he accepts the foul and qualifies, he is only entitled to his marking.

Change R3.2.5.3 Designated Re-Rides Set. Any PRCA event that adds more than $9,999.99, two designated re-rides must be drawn per rule R3.2.6. Only the required number of re-rides will count as an official out for NFR qualification. Additional re-rides may be set; however, they will not count as an official out for NFR qualification unless they are used. If an animal is drawn for competition but turned out for any reason by a contestant, including notified turnout, non-notified turnout, doctor release, visible injury or draw out, it will count as an out. If an animal is drawn for competition but removed by the contractor for any reason, including sickness or injury lameness, it will not count towards the minimum number of outs. Failure to have available re-rides will result in a $1,000 fine to the contractor and will progressively double after each offense.
Effective for the 2024 Rodeo Season (beginning October 1, 2023)

Change B8.3.1 Minimum Performances. All riding event livestock selected for the NFR must have been drawn for competition a minimum of eight outs at PRCA events during the Rodeo Year for which the NFR is being held. An animal selected for bareback riding or saddle bronc riding need only have eight outs in these two events combined. Outs at the previous year’s NFR, will not count toward the minimum number of outs. All riding event livestock minimum performance requirements must be met by the end of the Rodeo Year in order to be selected. A Stock Contractor qualifying to bring selected riding event livestock to the NFR under paragraph B8.3.2 below may bring only Eligible Livestock.
