New for 2021: At NRCHA shows, Box Drive includes a rein work. Check back soon for information about how Gem State will be handling this change.
After your rein work ends, you’ll make sure to pause to show you’ve completed the pattern. Then you’ll wave to the cow help to say you’re ready for your cow.
There are four parts to Box Drive:
1: You’ll box your cow at the end of the arena where it came in. You’ll demonstrate control of the cow until you feel it’s ready to take down the fence.
2: Setting up and driving/rating the cow down the fence to the other end of the arena.
3: Boxing at the other end of the arena.
4: Setting up and driving/rating the cow down the fence past the middle marker, which will complete your work.
There is a 1:45 time limit on Step Up Boxing Classes. You’re not required to use the entire time. The announcer will say when 30 seconds are remaining.
