Official Premier Timed Events Rules (Team roping)

Section 1: Roping

1a. Number of loops: contestants are allowed as many loops necessary for each run to get a completed time.

1b. Legal catches:

Three legal head catches

– Slick horns (rope clean around both and only both horns)
-Neck – rope clean around the neck of the cow/steer only. No leg or any other body part caught in the loop
-Half head – the head loop has one horn and the nose of the cow with no other objects in the loop
-If the hondo of the rope or the loop itself catches any object outside the three legal catches listed above, the head catch will be considered illegal

Two legal heel catches:

-Two legs – catching both and only both back feet of the steer/cow in the loop
-One leg- when heel loop catches one and only one back leg of the steer/cow resulting in a 5 second penalty

1c. Questionable catches: this is a video based competition, so any questionable catches due to the video angle and/or a poor quality video will be determined at the judge’s/timer’s best ability. This being said, video clarity is key in helping determine the success of your runs.

1d. Time/Time takers:
-The judge/timer will start the time for each run as soon as the gate of the chute opens.
-The time will finish when both the header’s and heeler’s ropes are tight and the ropers/horses are facing each other
-The time will go out to the one thousandth spot (.000)
* Video clarity is beneficial to contestant

1e. Tie on rule
-Tying on is allowed for men over 60 and women of all ages

1f. Crossfire rule
-There is no crossfire rule

1g. Heeler ropes front leg(s)
-If heel rope catches one or both front legs, as long as they are out before the head and heel rope are tight and ropers are faced and the timer has declared the run over; the run is valid.
-If a front leg is still in the loop by the time the header has faced, ropes are tight, and the judge/timer has declared the run over, the run will result in a no time.

1h. If a header ropes a front or back leg in his loop the run will automatically be over, no working the rope to get the leg out, and no “fishing” legs out of the head loops.

1i. Arena
-Make sure the video area is clear of other horses and riders etc. Anything blocking the view will hinder the timer’s ability to time the run accurately. If the timer’s view is hindered or they have difficulty viewing the actions of the runs, the contestant’s time may reflect that. (i.e time may end up being longer than the contestant may think)

Section 2: Judging

2a. Camera position
-To help Premier Timed Events give you the best possible time, we recommend you film from the heel side on the arena along the fence line. Make sure the filmer/videographer is down the arena far enough so the run is always in front of the camera. This is not mandatory, however Premier Time Events recommends this to help us in timing your runs as accurately as possible.
-Videos from other angles and positions will be taken and timed at the timer’s best ability/judgment.
-The header, heeler and cow must be in the film at all times.
-The gate of the chute must also be visible in the beginning of each run.

2b. Judges/Timer decision
-Our judge’s and timer’s decisions are final.
-To help them determine the best time we recommend videos come from recommended angles/positions and submit the clearest video as possible. The poorer the video quality the more difficult it will be for timers and judges to be as precise, which could lead to longer times than expected.

2c. Barrier
There is no barrier! Time will start as soon as the gate for the cattle is open. (As soon as our judge/timer sees the gates begin to open/move they will start the timer.)

2d. Timing and Timers
The time for all runs will start as soon as the gate of the chute containing the cattle begin to open. The time will stop when the header and heelers ropes are tight and the header and healer are dallied and facing each other.

2e. Videos
-Any videos sent to Premier Timed Events will be used for timing and will be submitted as your entries (3 head averages). All videos must be filmed during the current weeks competition. We have software that tells us when the video was taken. If the submitted video was filmed at any other time besides the current week of competition, the team will automatically be drawn out of the roping and entry fees will not be returned, but will be kept in the competition/jackpot.
-Also, our software will allow us to see if the video was tampered with in anyway that may depict the speed/time on the video. If the video is found to be sped up or slowed down for that matter, the team will automatically be disqualified from the contest. Entry fees will not be returned, but will remain in the competition/jackpot.

2f. Tiebreaker
There is no tiebreaker. In the events of a tie the winnings from the number of winning places will be split evenly amongst the teams that fall under the tie.

Section 3: Livestock

3a. Cattle are chosen at roper’s choice.

3b. Inspection
-Premier Timed Events cannot inspect all cattle used, however, we do not condone harmful treatment and unnecessary medication to the cattle. If any such actions are seen in the videos ropers will automatically be disqualified with entry fees not being returned. Entry fees will remain in the competition/jackpot.

3c. Questionable treatment
If Premier Timed Events feels that the handling or treatment of any livestock during the run may be considered unethical we have the right to not publicly display the run. If the run is a clean run we will still time it , but will not make it viewable to the public.

3d. Type
– Cattle are roper’s choice, cattle do not have to be horned. Roping “muleys” or polled cattle is allowed. However, cattle are the ONLY livestock allowed to be roped for submission in Premier Timed Events contests.

Section 4: Payouts

-80% pay outs for all ropings/contests unless stated other wise for special events.

-Payout structure

-Premier Timed Events uses a specially designed payout formula that will pay out a specific percentage of teams based on the total number of teams in each roping. The payout percentage will be set as follows, 10% of entered team will be winning money, unless stated otherwise for special events.
Example:
10% of 100 teams is 10 paid teams
10% of 150 teams is 15 paid teams
-When team numbers are uneven, Premier Timed Events will not round up to the next placing/money winning position.

5b. The video must show the roping chute at the beginning of the roping in order to see the chute gates open.

5c. The video must also contain the header, the heeler and the cow in the film at all times. Failing to do so will result in immediate disqualification of the team and the entry fee will not be returned, but will be left in the competition/jackpot prize.

5d. Premier Timed Events recommends filming runs along the fence of the heeler side of the arena. This will give the best angel and view of all the required aspects for each roping run.

Official Premier Timed Event Rules (Steer Wrestling)

Section 1: The run

1a. The steer wrestler must make a full and complete run
-The contestant must start in the back of the box.
-The steer wrestler must dismount from his/her horse to catch the “steer.”
-If contact between the steer wrestler and steer is lost, the run is immediately over, resulting in a no time.
-The steer must be thrown by the horns with no assistance from the hazer once the contestants feet hit the ground.
-After catching the steer, the contestant must bring the steer to a stop or a change of direction must occur.
-The steer must be brought down by the steer wrestler twisting the steer down by the horns/head. If the steer is knocked down, tripped, or brought to the ground by any form other than the legal act, the steer must be brought back to it feet and thrown the legal way.
-The steer must be fully out of the chute before the steer wrestler’s feet hit the ground.

1b. The hazer
-Only 1 hazer is allowed in each run.
-Each individual run can consist of a different hazer, howeve only one can be used for each run.
-The hazer may not bump/hit the steer in the face.
-The hazer can not provide any assistance to the steer wrestler while he/she is working the “steer.” If this occurs, the run is immediately counted as a no time.

1c. Legal Catch
-The steer must be initially caught from the horse. If the initial catch is lost, but contact is still maintained, the steer wrestler can still work the steer to the ground. If contact is lost, the run is immediately over and results in a no time.
-The steer wrestler can not use force in other parts of the animal to help bring the steer to the ground (i.e using fingers in eyes, lips, noses, etc). If these acts happen the runs will automatically result in a no time.

1e. Calling Time
-Time stops when the steer is on its side with all 4 legs visibly sticking out. All four legs and the steers head must be facing in the same direction.
-The contestant must remain in contact with the steer once it is on the ground until all 4 legs are clearly out from underneath the animal and the head of the steer is facing the same direction

*This is a video based contest, so make sure the the steers leg are visible in the video. If our timers can not see all the legs the time will continue until all legs are visible and we can accurately stop the timer.

1h. Questionable catches
This is a video based competition, so any questionable catches due to video angle or poor quality video will be determined at the judge’s/timer’s best ability. This being said, video clarity is key in helping determine the success of your runs.

1i. Time/Time takers:
-The judge/timer will start the time for each run as soon as the gate of the chute opens. The time will finish when the steer is on its side with all 4 legs sticking cleanly out and the head of the steer facing in the same direction

* Video clarity is beneficial to the contestant

Section 2: Judging

2a. Camera position
-To help Premier Timed Events give you the best possible time, we recommend you film from the left side of the arena. Make sure the videographer is down the arena far enough so the run is always in front of the camera. This angle/viewpoint is not mandatory, however Premier Time Events recommends this to help us in timing your runs as accurately as possible.
-Videos from other angles and positions will be taken and timed at the timer’s best ability/judgment. The steer wrestlers and the steer must stay in the video at all times. The gate of the chute must also be visible in the beginning of each run along with the steer wrestler, the steer and the hazer. Once the steer wrestler is working the steer the hazer no longer needs to be in the video.

2b. Judges/Timer decision
-Our judges and timers decisions are final.
-To help them determine the best time we recommend videos come from recommended angles/position and submit the clearest videos as possible. The poorer the video quality the more difficult it will be for timers and judges to be as precise, which could lead to longer times than expected, or a no time if the timer/judge can not determine the run.

2c. Barrier
There is no barrier! Time will start as soon as the gate for the cattle opens. (As soon as our judge/timer sees the gates begin to open/move they will start the timer)

We have software that tells us when the video was taken.
