The Arkansas state points are earned in Arkansas and count towards the Arkansas State Finals Event held at the WA Arena in Sheridan, Arkansas on September 27-29, 2024. Every show riders attend in AR counts towards this competition.  

Additionally all points form Arkansas competitions will count towards the World Finals Competition in TX!





In order to qualify for the added money and finals prizes at the Arkansas State Finals Event, riders must have 1) competed in at least 2 Arkansas events with 6 rides each day; OR 2) Youth riders that are rated #1 must have competed in at least 2 events riding a minimum of 18 rides. Riders must complete 8 rides at the finals event to be eligible for State Finals awards.  

  • The State Finals Competition shall be a double point’s show for all classes with less than 100 teams.  For classes with 100 teams of over the points will remain the same. IE if there is a class of 120 teams the winner of the class will receive 20 points not 40 points. 

Points for every class will count towards the Division Points with the exception of the Youth, Penning, and Legends.

  • Youth points will accumulate from the following classes throughout the year.  

  • Youth Sorting AND Youth Penning Classes 

  • Sorting classes with a team limit of 6 or lower (IE #6 sort, #4 sort) 

  • #10 Beginner Ranch Hand and True Beginner Ranch Hand 


Riders ratings may be moved up or down based on several factors, the most important being their win: loss ratio.  No rider (with the exception of newer or low volume riders and others previously noted) will be moved up or down after 9/01/23.  

Should a rider move from one division to another, the rider shall transfer only those points accumulated up to the amount equal to the number of points the current first place holder in the new division has accumulated.  IE if a rider is moved from the 2 division to the 3 division, and

  • has accumulated 210 points​, and

  • the leader of the 3 division has accumulated 195 points

  • then the rider transferring to the 3 division shall transfer only 195 points
