Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. How do I qualify to ride at the Bluebonnet Feeds Classes at the World Finals? 

    • A rider must meet the requirements to ride in the RSOA World Finals Event. Riders must have: 

      • 1) competed in at least 4 different RSOA sanctioned events, riding a minimum of 6 rides per event; or

      • 2) competed in at least 3 different RSOA Events riding a minimum of 50 rides total.

  • Riders must be present at the RSOA World Finals Event, riding a minimum of 8 rides at the finals event to be eligible for year-end awards.

  • At every RSOA Texas event 2 Bluebonnet Feeds Classes (#6 Sort, and #12 Sort) will be offered.  The top 30% of teams from each class (but not less than 10 teams) will automatically qualify (as a team) for the Bluebonnet Feeds Finals Event. 

  1. How many times can a rider enter the Bluebonnet Feeds Classes? 

    • Riders may ride up to 6 times in each Bluebonnet Feeds Class leading up to the finals. 

    • At the World Finals Event each rider may ride as many qualified teams as they desire up to 20 teams in each Bluebonnet Feeds Class plus their draws. (maximum of 24 rides)

    • Also the same 2 rider teams can only ride with each other a maximum of 4 times in EACH of the Bluebonnet Feeds Classes. ​

  2. If a rider drops some of his qualified teams for the World Finals Event, what happens to him and his partner that is dropped?

The partner that is dropped has the option of finding an additional qualifying partner that has qualified rides available, or simply replace those rides with draws. However the partner that dropped the ride cannot replace the dropped partner. He has forfeited that ride.

4.  How many draw rides are required?

The following outlines the required draws for each rider.  These draw teams are in addition to your qualified pick teams that you ride at the World Finals Event.

# of Pick Teams   # of Required Draws

  1 - 10                                     2

  11 - 15                                   3

  16 - 20                                   4

 

5.  Is there a limit to the amount of draw rides I can take?

A rider is limited in the number of draws they can take only by the number of qualifying rides available. For example if a rider has 15 qualified teams and only 10 of his partners agree to ride with him at the finals event, that rider may choose 5 additional draws to replace his incomplete teams, (IN ADDITTION to the required # of draws).   Or a rider can choose to only take the required # of draws.

6.  What is the cost of each entry for the Bluebonnet Feeds Class and what is the Payout? 

  • Ride prices at non-finals events are increased $5. 100 % of these increased $5 per run monies will be the Jackpot Bonus for the Bluebonnet Feeds Classes at the World Finals Event.

  • Ride prices for Bluebonnet Feeds Classes at the World Finals are $45.  An astounding 80 % of this entire amount will be paid to the winners (in addition to the aforementioned Jackpot Bonus). 

Standard association sanctioning fees of $3.00 are added to each run, as with every other class.

8.  What about Louisiana and Colorado riders and events? 

  • All producers can offer the #6 and or #12 Bluebonnet Feeds Classes.  They may not be offered at every event.  At the non-Texas events riders that wish to participate in the Bluebonnet Feeds Class simply notate on the sign-up form that they want to participate in the Bluebonnet Feeds Class and they will be charged that additional $5 fee. 

  • Both team members do not need to participate in the Bluebonnet Feeds class payment. .

  • If just one rider on a team participates and qualifies, then they will able to partner with another qualified rider at the finals, or select a draw. 

              

9.  What happens if a riders rating is moved up during the year resulting in the team rating being higher than the class limit? 

If a team qualifies and the riders ratings are changed later in the year, that team will still be allowed to ride in the Bluebonnet Feeds Class e.g. If a #4 rated rider and a #2 rated rider qualify in the #6 sort and mid-year the #2 rated rider is moved to a #3; that team will still be allowed to compete in the Bluebonnet Feeds #6 class even though their team rating is a 7.
