To enhance the image of our sport, D&D encourages and promotes appropriate western attire throughout the D&D Tour.  This includes a cowboy hat, long-sleeve western shirt hat, long pants and cowboy boots (heels down or like type shoes are permitted).  Shirt sleeves must be rolled down (buttoned or snapped).  Shirt tails must be tucked in.  Long pants must cover the top of the boot.

This dress code will be strictly enforced.  Contestants will be assessed a fine of $25.00 for each violation of this dress code.



Contestants will be assessed a fine of $10 for losing their hat at any time after they have entered the arena.  Contestants MUST pay this fine to the barrel setter holding the hat in order to retrieve their hat.  All collected fine money will be divided between the barrel setter and the "Phil Goostree Memorial Scholarship Fund". In the interest of safety, contestants may wear an appropriate riding safety helmet.


The same horse may be ridden by more than one family member as long as the contestants are members of the same immediate family (husband, wife, children and grandchildren).   The same horse may not be ridden more than twice in the same race.
