Twin Valley Riders Club Rules
You must be a paid member of the Twin Valley Riders Club by the first show of the season or any show you compete in for your points to count for year-end awards.
Age will be determined as of the date of the first show of the year.
Riders must dress in proper attire for the show; this would be jeans, boots, and a top.
Points are kept on one horse/one rider combination. When riding more than one horse per event, points will count for year-end awards for both horses, but on an individual one-horse/one-rider combination. NOTE: This rule does not apply to lead line.
If a person uses more than one horse per show, separate points are kept for each horse and separate entry fee must be paid.
A horse may only be used once per class per age division.
Points can be switched from one horse to another if a “PERMANENT INJURY” (horse deemed no longer fit to be a gaming horse) or DEATH has occurred to the horse with the points. The participant will need to notify a member of the Board of Directors before the “Fun Show” begins. The Board of Directors will need to okay the transfer of any points from horse to horse prior to “Fun Day” events.
Must compete in 3 shows to be eligible for year-end awards.
Negative coggins required.
Intentionally trying to prevent an object from falling over with your hand is a disqualification.
Tipped objects result in a 5 second penalty.
