MHC EXPO Exhibitor Selection Process

MPtHA Exhibitor Selection Process:

MISSION: To represent Minnesota Pinto, and the Pinto Horse Association, with the best variety of Stock, Hunt, Pleasure and Saddle type horses and ponies, Miniatures and B Miniatures and Solid Pintos.

Six (6) equine stalls
Two (2) tack stalls to be shared by exhibitors.


  • Stock Horse: Open, Amateur, or Youth
  • Hunt Horse: Open, Amateur or Youth
  • Pleasure Horse: Open, Amateur or Youth
  • Saddle Horse: Open, Amateur or Youth
  • Pinto Solid Horse: Open, Amateur or Youth
  • Pony: Open, Amateur or Youth
  • Miniature / B Miniature: Open, Amateur or Youth


1. Invite the immediate past year MPtHA High Point and Reserve High Point winners to represent MPtHA at Expo with a letter. Allow 7-10 days for a response of “yes or no” with a specific deadline. Letters can be presented at the banquet, along with the High Point and Reserve High Point awards.

* The following divisions are INELIGIBLE for participation at the Minnesota Horse Expo, for safety of all involved: YA Leadline, YA Walk-Trot and YA & AM Novice. (EXCEPTION: A Novice Youth or Novice Amateur may be invited IF that exhibitor is also a High Point or Reserve High Point in a regular AM, regular Youth, or Open Type/Classification)

2. Take the “YES” candidates for each of the type/classifications. If there is only one “YES” in a type/classification, that “YES” candidate is automatically the exhibitor at Expo.

3. If there are 2 or more candidates in a type/classification and more than one responded “YES”, then those names are put in a hat for a random draw. The name drawn will be the Expo exhibitor for that type/classification stall.

4. If there are more than six candidates from all the types/classifications, then all those names are put into a hat and six are drawn. Those names drawn will be the Expo exhibitors.

5. The goal is to have one representative from 6 of the 7 types/classifications. If the High Point and Reserve High Point winners decline to attend, then review the Class High Point winners to invite additional participants.

6. If any stall(s) remains open at this point, invite the immediate past year third through sixth place High Point winners, as needed, to fill a type or classification. If any stalls remain open at this point, invite a World Champion title winner from the past year World Show, or a Congress Show title winner, such as a High Point, a Reserve High Point, or a class winner or class 2nd place winner.

7. If stalls are still open, then invite a horse, pony or miniature that has achieved a PtHA Supreme Champion award, OR PtHA Superior Award, Miss/Mr Congeniality winner or Youth Scholarship winner. The focus is to fill the stall or stalls with suitable Pintos.

8. MPtHA and the MN Horse Expo does not allow stallions on the Aisle of Breeds.
