Cinch Team Roping Challenge Rules
A. No Additional Entry Fee. To qualify, exhibitors must enter and show in the AQHA Open or Amateur Heading and Heeling classes. The top 30 fastest times from the AQHA Open Heading and Heeling will qualify and the top 20 fastest times in the AQHA Amateur Heading and Heeling will qualify.
B. The horse/rider combination showing in the AQHA class will be the horse/rider combination that qualifies. Once qualified, the same horse/rider combination must show in the class, however, they can either head or heel regardless of what they were doing whenever they qualified. Exhibitors can also change their helper.
C. Times from the AQHA class will not carry over. In the CTRC, those qualifiers will start with a clean slate.
D. CTRC will be paid on a two-head average. The 10 fastest Open overall times and the 10 fastest Amateur overall times from the first round will advance to the short round. If there are not 10 qualified runs in the first round, then those that had a qualified run will advance to the short round.
E. The short run will be roped from slowest to fastest. Payout will be the average of the two runs.
F. A $15,000 purse will be divided 70% to the Open and 30% to the Amateur. Prize money will be paid through 10 places in both the Open and Amateur as long as there are 10 qualified runs. If there are not 10 qualified runs, the payout will be based on the number that made qualified runs.
