The 2010 Riders' Cup program has undergone substantial changes and in 2010 all WHTA licensed trainers are eligible to participate at no cost, however an application must be filled out.  In previous years, trainers were required to pay $50 to be eligible to participate in the program.

Also, new in 2010 horse shows are not required to offer additional prize monies in those Riders' Cup classes, can offer up to 10 divisions of classes and can be affiliated with any USDA approved HIO.

The Celebration will also be a Riders' Cup show in 2010, the first time the industry's World Grand Championship Horse Show will be affiliated with the program.  The recently completed National Trainers' Show and The Celebration will be triple point shows along with the newly announced Celebration Fall Classic.  All other horse shows with multiple judges will be double point shows with single-judge horse shows remaining single point shows.
