NEW - OXC is now requesting all members to sign up in their 'Home' division during the Membership Application process. By members choosing their 'Home' division this will help to determine correct eligibility in 'riding up' when entering races. The member's selected 'Home' division may be subject to review by the BOD should that eligibility be formally challenged.

How to do you know which division you belong in?
Please read the division descriptions guidelines below before choosing your division.
If unsure, please contact a member of the board or the OXC Secretary for assistance.

Novice
18 years & Over. The Novice Division is designed for beginner riders that are new to equestrian competition and/or the sport of Extreme Cowboy Racing. The purpose of the Novice Division is to provide competition that is fair to all beginner riders. Novice riders are allowed to ride "up" into higher Divisions of competition.
At the end of the competition year, a decision will be made by the Executive Board as to whether or not to move a rider out of the Novice Division. The Executive Board will make this statistical determination based on how many times a Novice has won their division and the number of riders that were in the Novice division at each race. A rider who has been moved out of the Novice Division may petition the Executive Board to remain in the Novice Division.
• The Novice course shall have 10 obstacles plus overall Horsemanship and time points.
• Obstacles shall be rated 1 - 3.

Intermediate
An Intermediate rider is an individual who is ready to move out of the Novice division but is not yet ready to compete in the Non Pro division. A rider in this division has had some competition experience in other equestrian sports.
At the end of the competition year, a decision will be made by the Executive Board as to whether or not to move a rider out of the Intermediate Division. The Executive Board will make this statistical determination based on how many times an Intermediate has won their division and the number of riders that were in the Intermediate division at each race. A rider who has been moved out of the Intermediate Division may petition the Executive Board to remain in the Intermediate Division. An Intermediate rider may not ride "down" into a lower division.
• The Intermediate course shall contain 13 obstacles plus overall Horsemanship and time points.
• Obstacles shall be rated 1 - 4.

Non-Pro
A Non-Pro rider is an individual that has experience as a rider but does not receive any form of compensation for riding or training horses, ponies or mules. This definition applies to all riders age 18 and over, except a Youth rider with parental permission. The Non Pro course shall contain 13 obstacles plus overall Horsemanship and time points.
• Obstacles shall be rated 1 – 5.


Ride Smart
The Ride Smart Division is designed for non-professional riders age 55 and over.
• The course shall have 13 obstacles plus overall Horsemanship and time points.
• Obstacles shall be rated 1 – 5.
Members registered as Non-Pro and Ride Smart may not ride down to the Novice or Intermediate Division. But members may renew their memberships at the lower division, such as Intermediate.

Pro
An individual is considered a professional rider if he/she is age 18 or over and receives compensation for riding or training horses, ponies or mules.
• A Pro may ride an unlimited number of horses in the Pro Division and may also compete in the Futurity Division.
• In order for a professional to return to a lower level of competition, he/she must not have received substantial compensation or worked full time riding or training horses, ponies or mules for a period of five years prior to applying to return to a lower level of competition.
