FUTURITY FINALS
The Futurity Finals are open only to membered and qualified WCBRA Futurity horses. The Futurity Finals will be strictly two gos, with a payout in each go and average awards. Futurity horses must have been nominated and then have competed in 4 total WCBRA approved Futurity classes to be eligible for the Futurity Finals. A rider must be qualified for the WCBRA Open (10 runs or more) themselves in order to enter a Futurity Final horse. The horse can enter in the Open and carry to the Futurity, run in just the Futurity, or run in both, but must determine this at time of entry. A rider may enter their choice of open sections and carry their time to the futurity finals, only if the horse is eligible for both classes. Futurity nominations are conducted through a separate membership found here by clicking here. See the Points tab of our website to see what horses have 4 qualified runs.

JUNIORS CLASS
A Junior (not to be confused with a Youth) CANNOT be entered in the open race. No qualifications are required but Juniors must have a current 2020-2021 WCBRA membership purchased by September 17th.

DRESS CODE
Mandatory long-sleeved, buttoned-up, collared shirt, tucked in. Western pants, cowboy boots, and a cowboy hat or helmet. Hats lost in the arena will result in a $10 hat fine. Any dress code violations will result in a $50 fine. Please dress professionally, as photos will be taken and displayed in various publications.

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 ($100 fine) but allowed to run if they choose to run, so long as their 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 result in a fine of a minimum $50. All decisions of the Race Official will be final.
