The Mustang Heritage Foundation (MHF) has partnered with the Stock Horse of Texas Association (SHTX) to offer special incentives for SHTX competitors showing Bureau of Land Management (BLM)-branded mustangs.
During the 2021 show season, MHF and SHTX will offer new mustang awards based on cumulative placings earned by qualifying horse and rider teams at SHTX shows throughout the year. Those ranked first through third place based on a cumulative high score from 2021 SHTX events will receive prizes including a saddle, belt buckles, jackets, saddle pads, and more. All exhibitors who are members of both SHTX and MHF and compete with a BLM-branded mustang are eligible to earn these awards.
An additional benefit available to mustang exhibitors who are members of both SHTX and MHF will be a yearlong involvement incentive. All mustang exhibitors who compete in at least one class at a minimum of three SHTX shows will be entered in a random drawing to win $1,500 in cash at the end of the show season.
“We’re thrilled to offer these incentives to SHTX competitors who choose to ride a mustang,” shared MHF Executive Director Alex Kappert. “SHTX shows offer a great platform to showcase the versatility and athleticism of the American mustang, so this partnership is a natural fit for MHF.”
SHTX was founded in 1996 to promote the versatile stock horse by creating a platform to showcase a variety of skills developed by both horse and rider in reining, pleasure, trail, and working cow horse disciplines. SHTX allows riders of all experience levels to learn and compete in a friendly, affordable environment and welcomes all breeds of horses to clinics and shows held year-round across Texas. This aids in fulfilling the SHTX mission of helping people ride a better horse.
“We are excited to partner with the Mustang Heritage Foundation with incentives for mustang owners to showcase their horses,” said SHTX Executive Director Jill Dunkel. “Stock Horse of Texas appreciates the versatility of these magnificent horses, and we can’t wait to see their talent at our shows in 2021.”
