- In the Silver Spurs Equine Team Challenge, exhibitors will run in a regular NRHA class with the highest scoring run winning the competition. As an added bonus, riders will compete in teams to ride for an additional $10,000 to be disbursed evenly among teammates.
- Once all entries are received, team captains will be selected based on their earnings in 2016. Team captains will then pick their teams one by one. Each rider will ride against the opposing team in the order they were picked. The rider who receives the highest score in that round, will receive a point for their team. If, at any point in the competition, riders end up in a tie, one-half point will be given to both teams.
