Limited Openings - Register Early!!
Check out the 2017 schedule for all of the Youth Events
Wild & Woolly
This event runs on a daily basis.
A minimum of 6 and a maximum of 8 participants are allowed per age category per heat.
Age Categories are as follows:
5 - 7 years old
8 - 10 years old
Helmets and closed toe shoes (no Crocks's) are a MUST for this event for the safety of the participant.
Parents or guardians must sign a waiver prior to the event or the participant will not be allowed in the show ring.
Pre-registration will be done one hour prior to the event each day.
If the participant has already participated in an event the prior day, they will be put on a stand by list and only be allowed to participate again if there are openings available before entering the show ring.
This practice of registration has proven to be the most effective way to allow more children the opportunity to participate in this well known, fun activity.
If the registered participant is not at the start line at the beginning of the heat, a standby participant will be allowed to fill that position.
All participants for the age categories will line up at one end of the show ring.
On "GO", the participants will run to the other end of the show ring.
The participant will have to catch a goat (5-7 yrs) or a sheep (8-10 yrs).
The participant will bring the animal back to the finish line.
Both the participant and the animal have to be over the finish line to qualify for their placing.
All participants are winners.
Safety for the participants AND the animals is our number 1 priority.
The participant will let go of the lead rope if:
they become tangled up in the rope
the animal becomes tangled up in the rope
if another participant gets tangled up in their rope
If the animal lays down, the participant will not
Kick the animal up
Drag the animal along the ground.
If any of these safety conditions are not followed, or if the participant shows unsportsmanlike behaviour, they will be disqualified and asked to leave the show ring.
"PLAY SAFE, PLAY FAIR, HAVE FUN!!!!
