Thank you to all those that took the time to comment, post, email, call, and show up to the members meeting. The Board appreciates your time, has heard you loud and clear, and thus – moving to a new, innovative way to divide our classes based on caliber!
Platinum Division: 1st tier competition horse who typically runs within half a second of the winning time at a local jackpot barrel race, rodeo horse caliber.
Gold Division: 2nd tier competition horse who typically runs a half second slower than the winning time at a local jackpot barrel race, on average places in 2D
Silver Division: 3rd tier competition horse who typically runs one second slower than the winning time at a local jackpot barrel race, on average places in the 3D
Bronze Division: 4th tier competition horse who typically runs one and a half second slower than the winning time at a local jackpot barrel race, on average places in the 4 or 5D
Diamond (in the rough) Division: amateur horse that has never been entered in a barrel race nor won money
Quartz Division: novice rider that has not won more than $500 in their lifetime
Things to Remember:
- YOU nominate your horse into the division you feel best represents your horse/rider caliber.
- If you need help determining which division, ask yourself:
- What would you market your horse as?
- Remove “the best run ever” and the “crap-show” – then on average, where does your horse typically place at a local jackpot?
- The Board is here for YOU and we are happy to help you out! Contact us now (via the contact page) and we’ll do our best to help place you in the best fit division.
- All 2019 horses have been evaluated and we can provide you our recommendation based on last years performance.
- Lastly, please be patient – this is a new, and EXCITING, format for all. There will be opportunities to learn and grow – so please share ALL feedback with the Board.
End of the Year Awards
The BBRS is moving to a points system for qualification of end of the year awards. Points will be awarded to up to 10 horses in each division at every event.
If there are less than 10 horses completing in an event, the highest points given would be the number of horses.
Example: 6 horses in a division = 1st Place would earn 6 points
|1st Place||10 Points|
|2nd Place||9 Points|
|3rd Place||8 Points|
|4th Place||7 Points|
|5th Place||6 Points|
|6th Place||5 Points|
|7th Place||4 Points|
|8th Place||3 Points|
|9th Place||2 Points|
|10th Place||1 Point|
*Only those horses nominated are eligible to earn points for end of the year awards
