Payback Provided at 2021 World Show and Celebration

Again this year, $5 from preliminary and championship entry fees will go toward payback.  Payback money will stay in the specific class meaning that classes with more entries resulted in a larger payback.

“Five dollars from each entry in the preliminary class was added to five dollars from each entry from the championship class,” added Melvin Snethern, MFTHBA Secretary/Treasurer.  “We will then use a percentage calculation based on the number of entries to determine the payback amount.”

Thanks to a special donation from Gene Donley, in memory of his late wife and avid performance exhibitor Patty Donley, will add $500 to the Amateur Owned 5 years and Older World Grand Championship class.

For model and performance classes the following breakdown will be utilized.

Number in Championship class First Place Second Place Third Place Fourth
1-5 100%      
6-9 60% 40%    
10-14 50% 30% 20%  
15 or more 45% 30% 15% 10%


In versatility and ranch horse classes, $5 from each entry in each class will be put toward payback for the World Grand Champion winners.  Money will be maintained in the appropriate division (i.e. money generated from open classes was paid back in the open division).  Three will be paid back in versatility and ranch horse.
