As we get into the busy rodeo season, be aware of the 4 Release Rule. The NSPRA no longer has medical releases, vet releases, or visual releases. Read the full rule under Section 13 of the 2017 Rule Book, but the short version is this: Every contestants is allowed 4 releases per season without being liable for their full fees. They will, however, still owe the $20 per rodeo NSPRA Charge. After the 4th Release during the rodeo season, a contestant who does not compete for any reason will be liable for all of their fees. If you must release from a rodeo, or series of rodeos, we appreciate you sending a check to the National Office at your earliest convenience. You can also call with a credit card and pay it that way!
