Here is a breakdown with explanation of each class:
Pantyhose Race: Teams of two riders each holding end of a pair of pantyhose race to end of arena, around barrel (plug race type placement) and return across the line without dropping or breaking contact between the two riders and the panty hose. Both riders must be connected to the pantyhose and the panty hose remains in one piece at time of crossing the timer line. No Time for dropping, disconnecting each other by tearing panty hose, knocking down the barrel or coming off the horse. The barrel may be touched on the way around.
Flag Race: Two barrels are at one end of the arena, one on each side. Ride down to the first one, pick up a flag out of the bucket on the barrel, ride to the next barrel, put the black in the bucket, ride back to the finish. Time penalties for missed buckets or knocked over barrels, and if you go on the inside of the barrels you are disqualified.
Ball and Bucket: Rider enters arena with a ball in hand, races down to barrel that has bucket on top, goes around barrel and puts the ball inside of bucket and races back to finish line.
Underwear Race: You have a starting point at one end of the arena and on horseback, you head to the other end of the arena where you will dismount, put on an over-sized bra and pair of over-sized panties, and head back to the finish line.
Chin Apple: Riders each receive an apple and with the apple tucked under their chin, must follow commands to walk, trot, canter, stop, turn and are eliminated by dropping the apple. Riders will be eliminated for holding the apple by any other means or not responding to commands of judge to change gaits etc., or for coming off their horse. Placing is by order of elimination with last rider the winner.
Egg Stomp: Eggs are placed on the ground at other end of arena for each horse competing. Timing starts when they are told to go, and all riders go to the end with the eggs and get their horse to step on the egg to break it, and once horse breaks their egg, then return back to other end of the arena for their finish time.
Jackpot Barrels: This is 50% payback, one winner. The 50% of the jackpot/entry fee goes to the winner with the other 50% going to the Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation (MHWF). There is added money to this class as well, and the added money all goes to the winner.
Open Bareback Tandem Simon Says: Simon Says, played just like the children’s game, but with two riders on a horse bareback. They follow the ring steward’s (Simon) orders such as “Simon says walk, Simon says trot, Simon says change position”, etc. Riders are eliminated when they perform something the steward tells them without saying “Simon says” or by not being able to perform the task. Placements are awarded for the last four remaining, with first place to the last rider pair remaining.
Bareback Ride A Buck: A dollar bill is placed by the judge under the rider’s knee, seat, thigh or calf. This class is run as a typical pleasure class – walk, trot and lope – although other maneuvers may be added. If you lose your dollar, you’re out. The rider who keeps their dollar the longest wins all the dollars.
Bribe Your Horse: Cones are placed in the middle of the arena. Contestants are allowed treats. The starting line is just inside the in-gate. The horse must be free and the purpose of the game is to successfully bribe your horse to and around the cones and back to the finish line. It's a timed event and is a hoot to watch.
Open Trail/Obstacle Class: The Trail class displays the ability of the rider and animal to navigate obstacles such as those encountered on a trail ride. The animal should be well-mannered, quiet, and a pleasure to ride, with the ability to handle the obstacles with a calm and willing attitude. Please note that Trail is not a speed event, but rather a test of control and obedience. The event is timed and also credit will be given to animals negotiating the obstacles with style, without hesitancy, and to animals showing the capability of picking their own way through course when obstacles warrant it, and willingly responding to rider’s cues on more difficult obstacles. We may have a "bonus" obstacle this year for extra points, but not a required obstacle.
MHWF Adoption Horse Demo: This fun show is open to the public and while many of the people at the show do learn that a lot of the horses there are adoption horses and have been adopted through MHWF, many don't even realize it, or exactly which ones are the adoption horses. The adoption horses have never had the spotlight just on them and it’s time to spotlight the adoption horses and let everyone know what fantastic horses they are! This class is going to be just for the adoption horses of MHWF, and they will all come into the ring at the same time. We will give a description of each one separately and then that horse will be in the middle of ring for their description, and can do whatever they like in the middle of the ring during their individual spotlight. Of course if someone really does not want to be in the ring for this with their adoption horse because of stage fright, we can always have someone else bring their horse in the ring for them.
