Major Update this Season

Jerk Down Rule - 

Jerk Down will be defined as bringing the animal over backwards between 10 and 2, landing on its head, neck, or spine with all four feet in the air. At a two-judged rodeo if the field flagger is in doubt, he may confer with the line judge and if the line judge is not definitive there is not a jerk down violation. 


The fine will be $50 each occurrence.
