All horses will show in the prelim. The top 15 placings in the prelim will be eligible for the Open finals. All Limited riders standing in the arena when the finalists in the prelim are named will be eligible for the Limited finals, regardless of whether they are named one of the 15 finalists to the Open division. Placings in the finals only will determine the winners.

D. 60% of the purse will be paid in the Open division finals and 40% of the purse will be paid in the Limited division finals (in classes that have Limited divisions). NSBA pay-back schedule will be used.

F. All horses making the finals may have their markings verified against registration papers.
G. Rider changes must be made no later than 2:00 pm the day before the prelim. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to report rider changes. Please see page 54 for this complete policy.
H. NSBA membership is mandatory for owner and exhibitor.
