IMPORTANT!  The following rule will apply to WSCA qualifying shows.  Please make your saddle clubs aware of this new rule.

Qualifying shows must be advertised on the “ON DECK” section of the WSCA web site.

All WSCA Saddle Clubs hosting qualifying shows must be published on the “ON DECK” section of the WSCA web site 7 days before the date of the show, otherwise the show is non-qualifying. If a rain date is needed and the show is rescheduled within 7 days, the show does not need to be republished on the “ON DECK” WSCA web site. If the show is rescheduled after the 7 days of the original show date, the show must be republished on the WSCA web site “ON DECK.”

If the show is hosted by a non-WSCA Saddle Club and has not been placed on the WSCA “ON DECK,” the judge will determine if the show is an Open Show following WSCA rules.

In order for a show to be challenged, a signed letter of complaint must be sent to the Judges Committee prior to the deadline for the MN State Fair &/or WSCA Championship Show.
