2021 World Show Tobiano Incentive Bonus Winners Announced

By Abigail Slaubaugh

Exhibitors riding tobiano and tovero horses had an extra 2,000 reasons to smile at the 2021 APHA World Championship Show—those competitors in select reining, ranch, working cow horse and cutting classes were automatically eligible for a $2,000 incentive bonus in select divisions in an innovative incentive program proposed and sponsored by APHA members. A $2,000 bonus was awarded to the overall highest-scoring entry in each of the sponsored discipline groups. The concept was the brainchild of Peter & Missy Benker and Jay Clark, and also supported byKelly Pinkston, D.V.M. Any tobiano or tovero entered in these 2021 World Show classes was automatically eligible for the incentive.
