ARENA OPERATOR/PRODUCER RULES AND GUIDELINES

PLEASE DISCARD ALL PREVIOUS ARENA RULES, GUIDELINES, AND INFORMATION PRIOR TO September 6, 2011.

All Classic Events produced by American West Management will continue to use the 5D payout in the Open Class.

You have a calculator to figure your payoff on the American West website:  
Choose the 4D payout calculator or the 5D payout calculator and enter the added money, number of riders, and entry fees. 

5D Division 1 27% Division 2  23% Division 3  19%  Division 4  17%  Division 5  14%

4D Division 1 30% Division 2 27% Division 3 23% Division 4 20%

THE OPEN 4D/ 5D WILL ALWAYS BE RUN FIRST AT ANY GIVEN EVENT!  Youth riders must be 15 years of age or less. Youth Riders cannot compete in the Youth Class if they turn 16 years of age, Senior rider’s must be 50 years of age or older during the competition. Senior cannot compete prior to turning 50 years of age in the Senior Class.

You may enter and ride any number of horses at a race in a specific class. A horse may be ridden more than once in any given class by immediate family members only, Mother/Child, Father/Child, Siblings, Husband/Wife or Grandparent.

Bad Checks:  If you receive a returned check and have exhausted all efforts to collect from a rider or vendor, notify the American West office immediately.  The rider or vendor will not be eligible to run or exhibit at jackpots or attend the Finals until said debt (service charges included) has been paid in full. A list of ineligible riders and vendors will be listed in the American West web site: www.aw4d.com each month. Names will remain on the list until said debt has been paid in full. 

No Time:  If a rider knocks down a barrel, it will be considered a ‘no time.’ No moneys will be paid on said run.  Off Course, Run out of Order, no competitive forward motion, turning the barrel twice will be considered a “no timerun will count as a qualifier and attendance points will be given for the race.

 Ground Test: Producer’s responsibility to test and know all ground conditions prior to race day. Proper equipment (i.e. tractor, drag, disc, ripper, and/or water) is a necessity for safe ground to race on. We strongly encourage good ground conditions for the safety of horse and rider.

Disclaimer of Liability:  All persons who participate in any race must sign a disclaimer of liability for the Producer and AMERICAN WEST 4D, LLC.  

Open 5-D:  Format is divided up into divisions accordingly:

       1st  Division  =  Fastest Time

       2nd Division =  Fastest Time + 1/2 seconds

       3rd Division  =  Fastest Time + 1 second

       4th  Division  =  Fastest Time + 1.5 seconds

       5th  Division  =  Fastest Time + 2 seconds

       Youth/Senior 4-D:  Youth and Senior Class may be paid in the 4D Division using 4D percentages and format.

       1st Division  =  Fastest Time

       2nd Division =  Fastest Time + 1/2 seconds

       3rd Division  =  Fastest Time + 1 second

       4th Division  =  Fastest Time + 2 seconds

18.   Office Charge:  Must be 30% or less.

4D Payout

4D Division 1 30% Division 2 27% Division 3 23% Division 4 20%

NOTE: If times break down where one division has no riders in it, then the pay off must be 30%, 27%, 23%, 20% respectively.  If time break down where two division has no riders in it, then pay off must be 43%, 33%, and 24%.  If only one person is in a division, that rider receives the total pay out for that division.

ARENA OPERATOR SUGGESTIONS 

Arena Rules:  Whatever your particular rules and guidelines are, make sure they are advertised in all event ads for your show. Or, have a disclaimer, which states ‘call for entry form and rules. 

Post Ground Rules at the event for all contestants to read to avoid any conflicts

Circling:   If you are expecting a big crowd, put a one circle (if needed) limit on all riders once they enter the arena to make their run. 

Rakes/Work the Ground:  Normally after 5 numbers, (count the vet out/scratches per section) and big drags after 50 Open riders.

Post Payouts:  Post all payouts after each class for the riders to see and review. 

CONTESTANTS MUST NOT WORK THE BARREL MARKERS WHILE ALLOWED TO WARM UP IN ARENA!

Concessions:  Specify in the ad whether or not concessions will or will not be available.  

Dress Code:  Specify whether or not a Dress Code will be observed. If so, be specific about your definition of a Dress Code. Dress Code is up to the arena operator’s discretion.   AW4D does allow long sleeve shirts without collars for all riders.  Most publications will usually not print pictures from your event if rider is not in dress code.

Cash Only:  Cash only (unless you know the check writer) on day of race.  

Fees:  Avoid excessive fees.  

Payout Most Producers will pay the last place in the 4D or 5D at least the amount of the entry fee charged.

Team Work:   We encourage all arena operators to work together. At our show, please make an effort to announce additional upcoming American West races at least a few times throughout the day and allow American West flyers to be placed for public pick up.  

55 Gallon Metal Barrels (with both ends closed) for all barrel races
