IV. EVENTS TIE DOWN ROPING A. General Requirements. Contestant must rope calf, dismount, throw calf by hand and cross and tie any three legs. To qualify as legal tie, there shall be at least one wrap around all three legs and a half-hitch. If calf is down when roper reaches it, the calf must be let up to his feet and be thrown by hand. If roper’s hand is on the calf when calf falls, calf is considered thrown by hand . Rope must hold calf until roper gets hand on calf. Three legs must remain crossed and tied from six seconds, as timed by the judge, from the time the rope horse takes his first step forward after the roper has remounted, until approved by the judge. Roper must not touch calf after signaling that he is finished until after the judge has completed his examination. Rope must remain slack until field judge approves the tie. Unless instructed to do so by the judge, roper will be disqualified for removing rope from calf after signaling for time, until the tie has been passed on by the field judge. In the event a contestant’s catch rope is off a calf after completion of tie, the six-second time period is to start when roper clears calf. Flag judge must watch calf during the six second period and will stop watch when a calf kicks free, using the time shown on the watch to determine whether calf was tied long enough to qualify. If tie becomes illegal by calf kicking, or calf gets to his feet before tie has been approved by the judge, the Roper will be marked “no time.” B. Two Loops Permitted. Two loops will be permitted, catch-as-catch- can, and should the roper miss with both, he must retire and will be marked “no time.” Roping the calf without releasing the loop from the hand is not permitted. If roper intends to use two loops, he must carry two ropes and must use second rope for second loop. If a second rope is used, the first rope must first be released from either the saddle or the calf. Violation of this Rule shall be a Class III Offense for mistreatment of animals. C. No Dragging of Calf. A neck rope must be used on the horse, and contestant must adjust rope and reins in a manner that will prevent horse from dragging calf. Contestant must receive no assistance of any kind from outside. If the horse drags the calf at least five feet, field judge may stop horse and the contestant will be disqualified. D. No Jerk Down. Intentional Jerk Down’s will result in the disqualification of the contestant. E. Fresh calves must be roped and tied no less than twice and no more than four times, under the supervision of the Tie down Roping Event Representative or his appointee. It is the responsibility of the stock contractor or Rodeo Committee, whoever supplies the calves, to ensure that the cattle are properly prepared.

LADIES’ BREAKAWAY ROPING A. Objective—the contestant must rope a calf from the back of a horse, and have the rope, which is tied to the saddle horn with a piece of string, break away from the saddle horn and do this in the fastest time possible. B. Equipment—the roper must use a standard catch rope with a white flag, a minimum of 24 inches in length and 2 inches in width tied to end of rope (no tail) and end of rope must be tied to saddle horn with a piece of string (#24 polycotton twine OR #18 nylon—150# test) furnished by the rodeo committee. C. The contestant will start from behind a barrier in the right hand box and will nod to the gate man to indicate when she is ready for the calf to be released. The calf will be given a pre-determined - 18 -

head start and beating or breaking the barrier will result in a 10-second penalty, and penalty will be documented by barrier judge. D. The roper must then chase after the calf. In order to be a legal catch, the loop must pass cleanly over the calf’s head. Once the loop has passed over the calf’s head, loop may draw up on any part of calf’s body behind the head. E. Time is to begin when the calf releases the barrier rope and ends when the field judge flags the rope breaking away from the saddle horn. Calf must break rope away from saddle horn— contestant would receive a no time should they break rope away from saddle horn themselves. F. Once the contestant has given up on their first loop and have started to compete on their second loop, if the first loop becomes a legal catch and breaks away, it WILL NOT be flagged as a time. The contestant will be flagged on their second loop. G. Disqualifications not covered in Rules above: 1. Breaking the string by hand rather than letting the calf pull the rope and break it away from the saddle horn. 2. Failure to release loop from hand before catching calf.

TEAM ROPING GENERAL RULES A. Each contestant will be allowed to carry only one rope. Only two loops per team shall be allowed (one loop at each end). Roping steers without turning loose the loop will be considered no catch. Roper must rope, dally and change direction of steer. Any heeler 50 years of age or older may tie hard and fast. B. All headers shall start from behind a barrier. A 10-second penalty will be added for breaking or beating a barrier. C. Field judge shall drop flag when steer is roped by its head and heels, and both horses are facing steer in line with ropes dallied and tight. Horses’ front feet must be on ground and ropers must be mounted for flag to drop. Steer must be standing up when roped by head and heels. D. Throwing Heel Loop. The direction of the steer’s body must be changed before the heel loop can be thrown. However, if the steer stops, it must only be moving forward for the heel loop to be legal. Any heel loop thrown before the completion of the initial switch will be considered a crossfire and no time will be recorded. E. Steer Roped by One Horn. If steer is roped by one horn, roper is not allowed to use his hands to remove loop or put loop over other horn or head. F. Heeler Roping Front Foot. If the heeler ropes a front foot or feet in the heel loop, this is a foul catch. Neither contestant may remove the front foot or feet from the loop by hand. However, should the front foot or feet come out of the heel loop by the time the field judge drops his flag, time will be official. G. Legal Head Catches. There will be only three legal head catches: 1. Around both horns. 2. Half a head. 3. Around the neck. H. Illegal Head Catches. The following shall be illegal head catches: - 19 -

Any heel catch behind both shoulders is legal if rope goes up heels. 2. One Hind Foot. One hind foot receives a five-second fine. J. Inspection of Catches. Any questions as to catches in this contest will be decided by the judges. If a field judge tells the header to hold the steer so the field judge may inspect the head catch, and the header does not do so, the team may receive a “no-time”. K. Time Limit. There will be a 2 minute elapsed time limit in the team roping. A whistle indicating “no time” shall be blown by the timer at the end of the 2 minute span. This Rule shall not apply to legal catches completed in less than 2 minutes but which, due to a penalty, are recorded as having taken more than 2 minutes. L. Falling Steer. In the team roping, if in the opinion of the line judge, the animal falls before it crosses the scoreline, the contestants shall be entitled to a rerun on the original stock, provided that the contestants declare immediately. There will be no penalty added to the rerun if, in the opinion of the judge, the contestants did not deliberately beat the barrier and if the contestants declare immediately.

DOUGLAS COUNTY FAIR & RODEO JUNIOR DIVISION GENERAL PROJECT EXHIBIT DISPLAY BOARD GUIDELINES Display boards are great ways to share information, but when viewers walk by, they spend only 60-90 seconds looking at each display board. Make yours stand out by highlighting the main points of your project in a fun, interesting way.

Follow these guidelines to create a display board for the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo.

SHAPE

TEXT

Design your exhibit so information fits on the display. Remember, you have 1 large surface, and 2 smaller side wings.

Make sure that all the text on your display is easy to read. Use a large font for the title, and smaller fonts for the headings and body text. Text must be readable from 3-5 feet away. Use large bold letters. Dark letters on a light background work best.

SPACE Your display should only discuss one main topic. This will help it look neat and uncrowded

ATTACHMENTS

SIZE

When attaching pictures or objects to your board make sure they are secure. Use glue for pictures and paper, and consider wires, zip ties or staples to attach bulkier items. Do not attach items that are so heavy that your board can’t stand or fold.

Display boards for the Douglas County Fair & Rodeo must measure 4’ wide x 3’ tall. They should be made of lightweight cardboard, but not poster board. Pre-cut boards are available at most craft and shopping centers. No part of your display may extend beyond these boundaries.

DISPLAY BOARDS Your e-record book must accompany your display board. You may use prong style binders or the 4-H Record Book Cover to keep the pages securely inside. You MAY NOT use slider-type binders. Unless specifically stated in the Junior Division General Project Department, Division or Class, 3-Ring Binders or Notebooks will not be permitted and may subject the entry to disqualification. Please place a label with the following information in the upper right-hand corner of the e-record book front cover, and on the upper right-hand corner of the display board or poster: Douglas County, Your Name, Project Area, and Class Information

S. DOG OBEDIENCE EXCERCISES AND SCORING: The principle feature of this exercise is that the dog heels and executes a prompt response to the Junior Division Exhibitor’s command and/or signal to down and remain in the down position until called, or signaled to come on command. Orders for the exercise are “Forward,” “Down your dog,” “Call your dog” and “Finish.” The Junior Division Exhibitor will stand with the dog sitting in the heel position at a point designated by the judge, who will then ask “Are you ready?” and order “Forward.” The Junior Division Exhibitor may command or signal his/her dog to heel, and will walk briskly and naturally. After the Junior Division Exhibitor has gone about 15 feet, the judge will order “Down your dog.” Without pausing, the Junior Division Exhibitor will command and/or signal the dog to down. The Junior Division Exhibitor will continue forward to the end of the ring, turn around and stand in a natural manner facing the dog. On the judge’s orders or signals, the Junior Division Exhibitor will command or signal the dog to come and immediately sit in front of the Junior Division Exhibitor until the command to “Finish” is given by the judge. T. Recall Over Broad Jump: The principle feature of this exercise is that the dog stays until directed to jump, clears the jump on a single command or signal, and immediately returns to sit in front of the Junior Division Exhibitor. Orders are “Leave your dog,” “Call your dog” and “Finish.” The Junior Division Exhibitor will stand with his/her dog sitting in the heel position at least eight feet from the jump, facing the lowest end of the lowest hurdle.
