The UPHA Exceptional Challenge Cup Committee announced that a new Exceptional Final will debut this year at the UPHA American Royal, the UPHA Exceptional Challenge Cup Lead Assisted Class. The specs to this class will be available on both the Exceptional Challenge Cup Facebook page as well as the UPHA Exceptional Challenge Cup page on the UPHA website. They are also available by contacting the Committee Chair Renee Biggins at (502) 722-5067.
Each year the Exceptional Challenge Cup committee was asked about a class for those that cannot always ride completely on their own, and the committee feels ready to finally offer that class. To add either UPHA Exceptional Challenge Cup class, you may contact the horse show of your choice and inquire about adding the class, then contact the UPHA office to get ribbons and the Challenge Cup trophy.
