WHTA Voted To Participate In 2004 MASCUP Program



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The Walking Horse Trainers Association Board of Directors and general membership voted to participate once again in the MASCUP program for the 2004 show season with the following changes.

The 2004 TWH Rider Cup Point System used to award the series champion, whatever the amount or size of venue, awards the same number of points. The TWH Point System is designed to keep horses showing close and competitive. It is to the riders’ benefit to be a steady finisher rather than a win-big or bust-type. The point system also helps to ensure that at each event, all the top riders will attend. Riders who are chasing MASCUP points cannot afford to miss even one event. This is crucial for event managers and promoters, who depend on appearances by “name” riders to help bring horse show fans. Points awarded to the top 10 placed riders are as follows: 1st place-175 points, 2nd place-170 points, 3rd place-165 points, 4th-160 points, 5th place-155 points, 6th place-151 points, 7th place-147 points, 8th place-143 points, 9th place-139 points and 10th place-135 points.

All shows running three or more days will receive a five point bonus added to the top 10 riders’ points. Competitors not placing within the top 10 brackets would receive 100 points for participation in the member event.
