Riders Cup Remains Unchanged



     There was no change in the top five competitors in the Riders Cup standings this week as 2006 Riders Cup Champion Joel Weaver maintained his already commanding lead in this week's third poll of the year.  Joel now has 3,690 points in 21 classes and leads second place Charlie Green by 2,180 points.  Green has 1,510 points in 9 classes.  This week also marks the 27th straight week Weaver has topped the poll, an all-time record. 

     Rounding out the top five are Link Webb - 1,230 points in 8 classes; Bill Cantrell - 1,210 points in 7 classes and Joe Cotten - 1,160 points in 6 classes.

     The Riders Cup is a joint program of the Walking Horse Report and the Walking Horse Trainers Association and is now in it's third year.  It has paid out over $120,000 to members of the Trainers Association in its first two years.  This year it will pay out in excess of $60,000.
