There will also be the always popular and fun Pro-Am Specialty Class. Of the 30 total classes, 10 will be Rider's Cup classes which will include a canter class for mares and geldings and the canter Stake Class.

There will be a $200 bonus prize to the trainer showing the most horses. We welcome sponsorships which are as follows:
