-ALL DECISIONS BY SHOW MANAGEMENT ARE FINAL-
The goal of the GTBRA is to offer our members a user friendly online exhibition reservation & entry system. You will be able to pay at the time of submitting your online entry, or when you arrive at the show. All draws, both competition & exhibition, will be published by the Wednesday before the race. This will allow you to arrive at our shows and have all your competition information in hand. If you don’t need to pay, have any questions or need anything of our office staff, you can spend that time with your horse instead of waiting in line.
If you are not able to pre-enter, no problem! The GTBRA will accept entries on location and online until the 1st horse of the class runs. Even if you are unable to make it to the office before the 1st horse runs, please use our online system to enter the day of the race. We are making every effort possible to eliminate the need for contestants to stand in line at the office to get exhibitions &/or enter.
You may submit your entries online or at the event. There is a 5% convenience fee on all credit card transactions. Returned check fee is $35 per check.
All checks are printed and available for pickup on location. Check not picked up on location are mailed the Monday following a GTBRA event.
The Pre-Entry deadline for GTBRA events is always listed on the entry form and show flyer. If you pre-enter and do not scratch your entry by the pre-entry deadline, you are responsible for your tab. SCRATCHES NOT RECEIVED BY THE PRE-ENTRY DEADLINE ARE REQUIRED TO BE PAID. All open tabs after the pre-entry deadline REQUIRE PAYMENT. Failure to not pay your open tab will result in you being denied entry to future GTBRA events until all outstanding invoices and fees have been satisfied.
If you enter a race and pay with a credit card, and SCRATCH by the appropriate deadline, your entry fees will be refunded via check following the conclusion of the event – Convenience Fees and Rider Fees will not be refunded.
After the pre-entry deadline, a credit card is required to guarantee payment on all Cash/Check entries. No credit card will ever be charged when your tab is paid in full on location. Failure to pay your tab on location will result in your credit card being charged for your entire tab balance, and will include a 5% convenience fee and a $50 office service charge. Please settle your tab on location.
Riders are welcome to enter as many horses as they like. A rider/horse combination can make 1 competition run per day at GTBRA events. If you are in a class and would like to enter an additional class, the 2nd class entry will be a roll over. 1 Horse + 1 Rider = 1 Run Per Day
All checks void after 60 days from the date they are issued. Need a replacement check? No problem! Write VOID on the front of your check and email a picture to: email@example.com. We will replace that check. There is a $25 fee to reissue check(s) for the first request. $50 to reissue check(s) for the 2nd request. $75 to reissue check(s) for all requests after 3 times.
Did you not receive your check in the mail following an event? No problem! Let us know. After 60 days from the date issued, if you have not received your check(s), we will replace it/them.

GTBRA will not clear tabs with show earnings. TAB ENTRIES must be paid by 12pm, noon, the day of an event. If you fail to pay your invoice before 12pm, noon, on a Saturday event day, your tab will be cleared with the credit card securing payment. These invoices will have a 5% convenience fee and $50 Unpaid Tab Late Fee billed to them. PLEASE COME TO THE SHOW OFFICE WITH ANY AND ALL ENTRY QUESTIONS, CONCERNS OR ISSUES.
Failure to not pay your open tab will result in you being denied entry to future GTBRA events until all outstanding invoices have been satisfied. Failure to pay your tab may result in your tab being turned over to collections.
