NRF Tour Rules

NRF Tour approves 10 Tour events each season. With the increased number of event requests to approve with the NRF Tour we decided to make some changes to keep the Tour growing in a positive direction. Since the Northern Region is a short show season and so many show requests we feel it’s only fair to these young horses to limit the number of Futurity/Derby events in our area. Our nominations over the past 5 years has grown way past our goal which is very exciting for the NRF. We want to keep the tour events specialized to a limited number of shows.

Horse & Rider Eligibility
Futurity:
Futurity Horse age is 4-5yr olds of the current season – only 1 year of futurity eligibility – Futurity horses CANNOT be competed on in any other barrel racing events PRIOR to Nov 15th of the previous season
Derby: Derby Horse age is 5-7yr olds of the current season – cannot be futurity eligible – only 2 years of Derby eligibility
Amateurs: Amateur status is based on the Futurity Rider – rider must not have won more than $500 in combined earnings prior to the current season in ANY futurity barrel events in the last 10 years.
