Rider must have a paid membership and competed at 10 races to qualify one horse on a single membership. The 10 qualifying races do not need to be all on the same horse, or even the horse you are wishing to take to the Finals. Riders with a double membership and 20 combined races qualify two horses into the finals. There is no limit to the amount of entries a rider can compete on. Each entry must be membered and it takes 10 attendances per entry (5 horses = 5 memberships = 50 attendances). Riders may not compete on the same horse in the same race at the finals. You can always look up a current race count under the POINTS tab of the website. The 'Points by Rider/Show' will breakdown all the attended races and points earned by each member. Please always reference the 'as of' date to know how current the report is, as it lags behind due to the time it takes to receive results and process them.
$90 a round into the open race plus $10 Office Fee for a total fee of $280 per open entry. No WCBRA Final Fees held out ($5) and no entry fee into the average. You must compete on the same horse in IT’S DRAWN ORDER all 3 days to be in the average (running a horse out of the drawn order will result in disqualification of that run and no refund of fees). Fees will be paid in CASH or by cashier’s check during check in.
*Junior Race: $70 ($35 each of the two rounds)
*All Other Side Pots (Senior, Youth,18/49, Futurity & Derby): $75 ($25 for three rounds each)
You may substitute your drawn horse for $25. This substitution can occur any and all of the three days, however it needs to be communicated and approved by the WCBRA office. Any rider competing on the wrong horse before getting the horse substitution approved will be disqualified from that round and the average. Substituting a horse after the first round will result in a disqualification from the three day average.

Once regular (not late) entries close, if reasonable cause for vet/med out and note provided, the contestant is responsible for 30% of all entry fees.

ADDITIONAL ARENA RULES
The main arena will be set up with a holding pen and alleyway. A Race Official will control and police the holding pens. Instead of disqualifications we will be implementing a fine system as follows; Riders are expected to load the holding pens during the drag (5 riders that are up and their helper if needed). The holding pen gate will be closed when the barrels are set and the tractors are parked. Riders and helpers NOT in the holding pens when the gates are shut will be fined an additional entry fee ($90 fine) but allowed to run if they choose to run, so long as there drawn position has not been passed. Riders will have 60 seconds to enter into the alleyway and cross the eye after their name is called. Failure to start your pattern will result in a $50 fine. After 90 seconds, racers will be disqualified for that one round if they have not crossed the eye. If your horse is hard to start, please have a plan. Help, in full western attire, is allowed in the holding pen, but no person or horse is allowed past the plane of the gate into the alleyway except those that are up. You must be mounted when entering the alleyway. No dismounting in the alleyway for any reason. Failure to follow the holding pen rules will results in a fine of a minimum $50. All decision of the Race Official will be final.
All contestants and their family members are expected to display good sportsmanship at all times. Foul language, misconduct or abusive comments spoken to any contestant, spectator, staff member or volunteer will result in a minimum $100 fine. Maximum penalty will result in immediate disqualification and no refund of entry fees. Parents and contestants please realize that any abuse via social media, emails, face-to-face or otherwise will result in a fine or disqualification. All decisions by the race director are FINAL. Disqualified contestants due to abusive behavior must leave the premises immediately. No level of abuse will be tolerated at any time.
