Can I still enter the SDTEC even if I am not from South Dakota?
YES! We open the SDTEC up to the "Northern Plains" region. Anyone from South Dakota and nearby states can enter.
Can I use more than one horse in the SDTEC?
Yes, there is no limit on the number of horses a contestant can use. However, if you choose to enter the "Horse of the Championship," the horse entered must be entered in (but not limited to) two events.
Can I still enter the SDTEC if I can only attend one day of weekend?
We suggest you do not enter if you cannot attend both days. The number of contestants is limited due to time and space constraints. Prizes will not be awarded to anyone only participating in one day of the SDTEC. The entry fee is the same standard price no matter if you participate in one day or two days.
Can I vet release or medical release out of the SDTEC and can I get my money back?
Money will not be refunded under any circumstances. If the contestant notifies a SDTEC spokes person (Jason Edleman, (605) 350-5000) prior to the print date of the programs, the contestant's name can be removed from the program/draw.
Will you match me up with a Team Roping partner if I do not have one?
We do not partner teams up. There must be a partner provided at the time of entry or the contestant may forfeit his or her team roping position/draw.
Do I need to be a member of NHSRA, NLBRA, or 4-H?
No. SDTEC is not affiliated with any of these associations.
Can I win the trailer two years?
No. The SDTEC champion can only win the trailer one time. However, the champion is still eligible for saddles, scholarships, and other awards. The trailer will be awarded to the next in line, such as the reserve.
