We have a location!  The Board of Directors voted to hold SNFR 2016 October 5-8, 2016 in beautiful Panquitch, Utah.  We are working out the little details such as host hotels, etc. and will be updating the information regularly!


Points will be calculated in each age group. The race will be paid in a 3-D format with 1/2 second splits.
Contestant can enter two horses if she wants. She cannot run the same horse twice. Both horses are eligible for the payout, but only one horse is eligible for her points to count.

Contestants will be awarded year-end saddles and world championship buckles in their appropriate age category, unless their partner in the team roping or ribbon roping is in a lower age category.  In that case, contestant would be eligible for awards in the lower age category.  Year-end saddles will only be given in each if the event director is able to get a sponsor or sponsors to cover the cost of the saddle(s) in their event.

If you qualify in multiple age categories for the finals, you MUST designate which category you will accumulate points in when you enter the finals.
