Appaloosa Timed-Event Ropers to Compete for World Show Cash, Prizes

Moscow, Idaho –Thanks to a new incentive package, timed-event ropers at the 2007 World Championship Appaloosa Show will compete for more than $40,000 in added cash and prizes. This year’s show is set for Oct. 26 to Nov. 3 in Fort Worth, Texas.

Contestants in five open and non-pro roping classes will divide a cash purse of $10,500. Fund donors include Mike Mataya, M&C Ranch; and Hyman and Julia Young, owners of Appaloosa performance horse Last Day Lite. The prize list also includes an S&H horse trailer from Sundowner of Texas; one ton of Nutrena feed; trophy saddles from Luskey’s/Ryon’s and Coats Saddlery; roping dummies from Hot Heels; trophy buckles from Gist; and saddle pads from Classic Equine.

“This incentive package is designed to showcase the performance abilities of Appaloosa rope horses, and to reward the owners and exhibitors who chose Appaloosas as their roping mounts,” said Steve Taylor, Appaloosa Horse Club CEO.

Ropers must qualify in three of the five events, by earning points at ApHC-approved shows held between Sept. 1, 2006, and Aug. 31, 2007. The classes requiring pre-qualification are: open timed tie-down roping (three points); open timed heading and heeling (4 points); and non-pro breakaway roping (one point).

A list of shows remaining in the qualification period is available from the Appaloosa Horse Club.

Non-pros don’t have to qualify for two classes that are new to the World Show this year. These classes are non-pro timed tie-down and non-pro heading and heeling.

To obtain the list of remaining Appaloosa shows in the qualification period, or for general information about the 2007 World Championship Appaloosa Show, contact the ApHC Performance Department at (208) 882-5578 ext. 400, or visit http://www.appaloosa.com.
