Riders' Cup Sponsorships Available



The 2010 Riders’ Cup show season is off and running and trainers are accumulating points each weekend at horse shows across the country.  The Riders’ Cup program expanded to 10 divisions and lowered the sponsorship of each division from $5,000 to $2,500.  The Celebration has sponsored the Walking Horse Stake division but the remaining 9 divisions still remain available.

Sponsors in 2010 are afforded not only a 50% discount from 2009 but also increased exposure across the country.  The Riders’ Cup program is open to all affiliating HIOs in 2010 and will be held at more horse shows across the industry than ever before.  Also, horse shows are not required to increase prize money or sponsorships in those Riders’ Cup classes so all horse shows affiliating with the Riders’ Cup program are incentivized to offer all divisions of the Riders’ Cup.

Also, for the first time in the history of the program The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration will participate in the Riders’ Cup.  All three horse shows managed by The Celebration will participate with both The Celebration and new Celebration Fall Classic being triple-point shows.  The Spring Fun Show will be a double-point show.

The Riders’ Cup standings are printed each week in the Walking Horse Report and are online at The Report’s web site at www.walkinghorsereport.com.  The sponsors’ logos are displayed each week in the printed edition and online.  Also, a division’s sponsor is announced at each horse show as the sponsor of that class.

For more information or to obtain sponsorship information please contact the Walking Horse Trainers’ office at 931-684-5866 or whtrainers@gmail.com.
