UPDATE Barrel Pattern For Races after 07/19/20: Barrel 1 and 2 are 60′ apart and to 3rd Barrel 70′. The timer is 25′ from the center of Barrel 1 & 2. Please give plenty of safe room for stopping. Barrels need to be centered on the markers.

You must set this pattern size to compete! – The dimensions of this pattern are small so it should fit in most arenas or pastures! MUST TURN BARRELS.   *Ride at your own risk! Please do not ride on unsafe ground conditions!

You must time your run to have a qualified run to “win or place.” Timers must be at the correct timer line dimensions or have a friend stand at the timer line with a stopwatch or a stopwatch app on your phone. They must stop the time when they see the horse’s nose cross the timer or stop the time before! When you video your run show proof of the time on the timer! YOU MUST FILM the horse cross through the timer line at the start of the run and at the end with the timer showing in the frame so we can verify the time. All runs on stopwatches that only time to the hundredth of a second will have a 9 placed as the thousandth of a second (EX 12.32 will become a 12.329) (Anyone caught being dishonest with their runs and times will forfeit all entry fees and will be disqualified for any future virtual events.)

You may enter on more than one horse but please be sure to enter that horse on a separate https://xfactor.rodeo/events.  Click on that weeks Virtual Event.

Camera position
-We recommend you film far enough down the arena where we can clearly see the run with an angle that shows us the side of the saddle horn where the roper’s rope will breakaway, so our timers/judges can be as accurate as possible.
-Make sure the filmer/videographer is down the arena far enough so the run is always in front of the camera to help us in timing your runs as accurately as possible.
-The roper, their horse and cow must be in the film at all times.
-The gate of the chute must also be visible at the beginning of each run.2
