Your confirmation number will be stored on your profile.

CALL IN ENTRIES

Call ins are one night only, two Tuesdays before the rodeo date from 6:00 to 10:00 pm. If you need to make changes to your online entry, you must do it on call in night.

No late entries are ever accepted.

TURN OUT POLICY

Effective March 1, 2024, all AHSRA turnouts must be submitted on the form on the Turnouts Page:


  • Be sure to complete all fields and include as much information as possible.
  • Please upload any doctor notes / vet notes.
  • When you submit the form, you will receive an email confirmation with your submission details.
  • You will receive a reply from the data secretary within 12 hours if fines or fees payment is required, the amount, and instructions to pay it. Payments must be made to the host committee by 5:00pm on the Saturday of the rodeo weekend. Failure to pay your fees and/or fines on time, you will be placed on the blacklist and be ineligible to compete until paid in full.

If you have any questions, please call Jamie Thorsteinson, Data Secretary at 403-740-3575.

Entry Fees – If you turnout after entries close, you must pay your entry fees.


Turnout Fines – Turnouts that are received less than 48 hours before the start of the first performance are subject to a fine of $60 per day (this does not include vet / medical releases). Turnouts that are submitted more than 48 hours prior to start of rodeo are not subject to fines. A turnout for bereavement is still considered a turnout – all fees and fines apply.


Vet Release – A vet note must be provided by Wednesday at 5:00pm following the rodeo that you vetted out. The vet note must state that the horse could not compete.


Medical Release – you need a note to medical back in if it was an injury. If it was the flu or illness then you need a doctor’s note stating you were too ill to compete. Medical notes must also be in by the Wednesday at 5:00pm following the rodeo. A doctor’s note is required in order to return to competition.


Refer to Section 3.11 (page 16) of the AHSRA Policies and Procedures Manual for turnout rules.
