2012 North Dakota Rodeo Association Rule Changes
Rule addition - Point and/or money won at rodeos in which the NDRA has been co-sanctioned by another association, will not count towards the NDRA yearend finals totals, or be used in any tie breaking situations for rodeo count or money won. The NDRA still has the opportunity of co-sanctioning these rodeos and NDRA members will still be able to compete on their NDRA cards at the out–of-state rodeos, but the points will not count for the NDRA Final Standings.
SMB/LBK – Rule to be added in both sections – Flag will be tied at the knot on end of the rope
Current Rule - 4. Catch must be a clean head (neck) catch. Rope must remain around the calf neck when string breaks from saddle horn
Rule Change - 4. The only legal catch will be a bell collar catch. Any other catch will be considered a no time. A bell collar catch is defined as the calves whole head with no extremities. Rope must remain around the calf neck when string breaks from saddle horn.
Rule States: 8. If a contestant is fouled by the barrier or a neck rope that stays around the calf’s neck, she will be given a re-run if the foul is declared immediately by pulling up. If a rope is thrown, no re-run will be given.
Strike Rule #8 & Rule #13 of the Timed Event Section is used.
