2004 NSBA Rule Changes

The following rules have either been adopted or changed by the NSBA Board of Directors to be effective January 1, 2004. Underlined items indicate new rules. Words that have been striked through indicates wording being deleted. Rule numbers are reflective of the 2003 Rulebook.




Limited Division Non-Pro Yearling Longe Line




The Dual Approval Program is designed for all NSBA recognized breed associations and their members. In the Dual Approved Program, a show may hold NSBA approved events and run them concurrently with their corresponding breed class. The horses will work one time, the judge will judge one class, and participants will earn both NSBA and registered breed points.


23. Applicable Association's rules take precedent over NSBA rules in dual approved classes.


24. Applications for approval must be received in the NSBA office 90 days prior to the event. Forms may be photocopied. Separate application forms must be filled out for each judge's set of points for the Dual Approval program.


25. A copy of the proposed or actual showbill and entry program must be submitted with the completed application.


26. The application fee of $75.00 per set of points awarded must be included with the show application. If there were a singles how followed by a split/combined show, the fee would be $75 for the first day, and either an additional $75 for one set of points of the split/combined shows, or $75 each for both sets of points for the split/combined shows.


a) All memberships, result forms and fees must be returned to the NSBA office within 14 days of the completion of the show.


b) All funds must be paid and reported in US Funds. Failure to report results to NSBA within the 14 days will result in a $50 fine in addition may result in disqualification of the show.


c) A result form should be completed for each class. It should include entries, which placed and/or received money. All forms necessary for the show will arrive prior to the event. In the event a computer program is capable of printing results and/or money sheets, the NSBA forms do not need to be used. However, the printed forms needs to include the placing and money earned, owners and exhibitor's names and NSBA membership numbers if not using NSBA forms. A roster of the class needs to be included with the results.


27. A show must offer at least two NSBA classes for approval. Should classes need to be combined due to lack of participation, note that on the result forms.


28. Judges are required to be both breed association approved and NSBA approved. The judge will place the class according to breed rules. If the class has 20 regular entries and the breed asks for 9 placings, that is how many the judge is to place. The show secretary will transfer the placing of those NSBA entries that have placed on the breed judge's card to the NSBA card. If a judge places more entries then what the breed requires, the other placings are void even if they are NSBA entries. Only NSBA participants that place on the judge's breed card will be recognized for NSBA points. The points given to those participants will reflect the total number of NSBA entries that participated in the class.


29. The owner as well as the exhibitor must be a current member of the NSBA. Show passes may be purchased for $10; however, horse or exhibitor will not qualify for points towards NSBA year end awards. If the Dual Approved classes are running over a two day split/combined schedule, a one time $10 (per show) day fee is all that is required.


30. There is to be a 6% sanction fee collected on each NSBA entry with a minimum of $1 per entry.


31. It is recommended that the NSBA entry fee be similar to the entry fee for the breed classes. There are separate NSBA entry forms available. If the show does not include them on the entry forms, contact the NSBA office and request NSBA entry forms. They will be mailed along with the show packet.. The request form can be found on the show application.


32. If a show decides to jackpot a portion of the entry fees, the payback schedule follows the NSBA payback percentages that are in the NSBA rulebook. Paybacks for the Dual Approved classes must be submitted to NSBA on the show application. For example, if there is a class that is held on Saturday with $500 added money and jackpotting 55% of the entry fees, those placed on that day receive those winnings for only one judge and only on the results of that day. Paybacks cannot be done on a combined day schedule or on combined judge's scores. The added money is strictly paid on per judge/ per show schedule.


The maximum amount that can be added to the each class is $1000. It is not required that there be added money. Shows may jackpot a portion of the entries fees collected. However, jackpotted monies must be dispersed on a daily basis at the end of each class. To offset show expenses, up to 45% of the entry fees may be retained.


33. Every NSBA class will receive a NSBA Awards Plaque at no cost to the show. If there are no NSBA entries placed on the breed judge's card, return the plaque for that class to the NSBA office. Plaques will be shipped directly from the manufacturer prior to the show.


34. Trophies are awarded based on the added money in each class.


a.) $1000 added in Western Pleasure - C.R. Morrison Pewter Western Pleasure trophy

b.) $1000 added in Hunter Under Saddle classes - Bill French Pewter Hunter Under Saddle trophy


Trophies and/or plaques will be shipped directly from the manufacturer prior to the show.

39. Non-Pro Western Pleasure (WP) rider classes may be offered in any combination of three divisions (a) - (c). When the limited division is offered, it must be in combination with the Pleasure Stakes Series or at least the Open Non-Pro division. (See show application for combinations.)

45. The Pleasure Stakes Series was developed in an effort to encourage greater participation for a variety of riders.

The Pleasure Stakes Series works as follows: Shows have the option to hold a Pleasure Stakes Series in any age and rider division that they choose. The term "Pleasure Stakes Series" refers to the series of classes offered within a set of rider categories and in a horses' age group. For example, in order for a show to hold Three-Year-Old Open WP Pleasure Stakes Series, the show (must offer the Open/Intermediate and Limited riders classes) may offer any combination of rider categories according to the class divisions explained in rule #38 and #39. Furthermore, when a show offers the intermediate division it must run in the below stated format regardless of the class combinations.


The intermediate (open) class will run first in whatever combination of go's specified in the show's class format. No extra entry fee will be charged for entering the Intermediate portion of this class but riders declaring the Intermediate status must do so when entering. (Intermediate finals will be shown together with Open finals, UNLESS there are three (3) Intermediate entries shown with the Open. In which case, the Intermediate riders will ride in a clean slate 1 go finals for the Intermediate portion of the purse, after the Open finals is held. Intermediate Riders must SHOW in the Open section of the class to qualify for a ride in the Intermediate Finals if held separately.) Intermediate riders may then have the option to show in the open division, which will be held after the intermediate class. A bronze trophy will be presented to each winner of the Open and Intermediate divisions with a minimum of $2000 added money to the class. The Limited Open Rider class will operate as a separate class with separate entry fees. Limited Riders may show in the Open/Intermediate classes as well, upon payment of proper entry fees.




46 b. Added money = a dollar amount is determined as added money and then that amount is added to the jackpotted portion of entry fees to make the total purse. To qualify for the trophies to be ordered previous to the show and awarded at the show, any added money must be "guaranteed added money." That means that the amount to be added is guaranteed no matter how many entries the class has.


When added money to an NSBA Futurity class is advertised to be dispersed based upon the paid entries, these stipulations must be met:


a) If there are six or more paid entries, the added money must be guaranteed.

b) The show contact person must stipulate on the NSBA show approval application that added money is dispersed based upon the number of paid entries being six or more.

c) The show bill must include an explanation that added money and NSBA trophies and/or plaques will not be awarded should there be less than six paid entries, and must be submitted with the show application.

d) Advertising must include explanation that added money and NSBA trophies and/or plaques would not be awarded should there be less than six paid entries in the futurity class.

e) The show contact person must send copies of all advertising pieces pertaining to that futurity to the NSBA office.


Should there be six or more paid entries, the show secretary and/or management has 14 days after completion of the show (along with the show packet results) to turn in the address of the winner of that futurity class. The NSBA office will then order the appropriate trophy and /or plaque to be sent to the winner. This stipulation can only apply to rule 46b, Added Money.



1) To be scored according to severity:

s) Overly canted at the lope. (Overly: When the outside hind foot is further into the arena then the inside front foot, the horse is overly canted).




(#118 e)Maturity Limited Horse is a maturity horse that has earned less than $2,500 in NSBA WP events, and same as 116 a & b.)

c) Horses may be ridden with one hand and a standard western bit as approved by NSBA or with two hands and a snaffle bit or bosal as described under NSBA Equipment Rules. Horses 6 years of age and older MUST be shown in a standard western curb bit as approved by AQHA.





132. Limited Division Non-Pro Yearling Longe Line shall run concurrently with the Open Non-Pro division. Participants must enter the Open division, but may also enter the Limited for an additional entry fee if eligible.




Limited Division Non-Pro Yearling Longe Line - (points on horse and exhibitor in combination)




161. Stallion Owners are encouraged to participate in this program by donating one or more breedings to be sold to mare owners. Mare owners will purchase breedings by sealed bid. The bids will then be opened on a date so specified by the current year stallion program, for a minimum of one half the advertised fee plus $100 (US). The mare owner with the highest bid obtains the breeding. Those stallions remaining unsold after the close of the auction are available for half their stud fee, plus $100.00. First receipt of funds will determine recipient. The mare owner must be an NSBA member to purchase a stallion breeding.


The stud fee will be used to fund the incentive program classes as added money to each respective state. The administrative fee and interest earned will be utilized to promote and pay the expenses of the program. NSBA must receive a minimum of $300 per donated stallion for get to be eligible for the program. Minimum fee for stallions standing at private treaty or not at all to the public is $600. The emphasis of the program is to provide futurity money for state or regional NSBA Stallion Incentive classes. The donated fees from sold stallions are returned to the respective states in which the stallion stands, or to the state of residence of the owner, per the owner's directions. The money will be added to an existing NSBA show or futurity in each state/region with money from sold stallions. Stallion incentive fund classes will be held at breed specific shows. Quarter Horse stallion fees will be placed at a Quarter Horse only events, Appaloosa stallion fees will be placed at Appaloosa horse only events, the same holds true for a Paint stallion. If a stallion has foals registered with more than one breed association, the stallion owner may designate one breed to receive the added money, or donate additional breedings designated to other breeds, ensuring that all two and three year olds that year are eligible for the stallion incentive fund classes. Should there be more than one request for the stallion money in a state/region; the show being hosted by a NSBA state affiliate will receive first option. In areas where no affiliate exists, the sold stallion owners from that state/region will vote to determine the placement of the stallion money.


#161 - 1)


D) Deceased Stallions: Should a stallion die previous to the May 15 deadline for the donated breeding to be sold, half of the advertised stud fee plus $100 paid would allow eligible two and three year olds to compete in stallion incentive classes. In the event the stallion is deceased and there are two and three-year-olds eligible to compete in the stallion incentive fund classes, a fee equivalent to half of his last recorded NSBA stud fee, plus $100 paid would make them eligible. If the stallion stood at private treaty, then the fee due would be whatever the current rules of the Stallion Incentive Fund Program require.


#161 - 14) Stallion owners of sold stallions will receive a designation application form for "free entry" into all of the NSBA Stallion Incentive Classes. The designated horse must be by owners sold stallion. The designated application must be completed 30 days (or more) prior to the designated horse being shown for the first time in a Stallion Incentive Fund Class. Upon completion of designated application, containing horse's registered breed number and name, the owner or agent will mail it back to the NSBA office to be issued a designated certificate. This certificate should remain in the owner's possession for the remaining year to be shown to show management for free entry into Stallion Incentive Fund classes. The designated certificate will allow a free entry in any state holding Stallion Incentive Fund classes. Show management may charge an office fee up to $15 per Stallion Incentive Fund class entry. (The designated form must be completed upon entering this designated horse for the first time in a Stallion Incentive Class. At this time, the owner or agent will complete the designated certificate with the designated horse's registered name and breed registration number. The certificate is to be shown to show management for free entry to Stallion Incentive Classes and should remain in owner's possession for use in the remaining Stallion Incentive Classes. Once this certificate is completed and your free entry is designated by entering same at show, the designated free entry may not change. Only the office charge of $10-$15 will be collected with each designated free entry at each class he/she participates in..)


Should said designated horse be injured or die prior to 30 days before being shown for the first time in a Stallion Incentive Fund class, the stallion owner will be allowed to transfer the designated injured or deceased horses certificate to another resulting offspring (only if sired by that same stallion). However, the certificate transfer will only be valid if it is 30 days (or more) prior to that resulting offspring being shown for the first time in an Stallion Incentive Fund class.
