Yeah. I am probably going to end up taking the buckets to a tack swap or something and probably giving the extra brushes and junk away. I won't complain about treats lol but yeah I agree. I kind of like the T-shirt idea, as long as it isn't generic... hhmmm thnx so much for your imput .

I still have every one of my trophies and ribbons and the last show I did was 15 years ago.
Yeah I've gotten that before too >.< I REALLY like the cooler idea! I need to see how much some nice series/top prizes would cost. Our region didn't even to reserve champions this year?? Only Champions and we had plenty of people do give away reserve. I am thinking of having jackpots classes that only 'adults' can enter since I haven't really been to any shows where juniors can win money (give or take) so I am thinking so they don't feel left out maybe have some other prize for them? Maybe like a "jackpot class 1st place winner?" or maybe over giving ribbons to the juniors for a 'jackpot' class give out trophies for placings??

I ran at a local gymkhana show awhile ago. I got grand champion and got a pink bucket with a brush and a ziplock with some treats in it. Local show so sure, they're not going to have a big budget but for $12 a class, I would have been happier with something less chincy
For the adults:
2nd - $15.00
3rd - $10.00
4th - $5.00
5th - Ribbon
6th - Ribbon
Then charge maybe $9.00 to enter this class appose to $5.00? Or maybe charge $10.00 to enter and add an extra buck into the pot maybe? I wanted to see if maybe we can get sponsors for the class but if we have a 3 or 4 show series it will be hard to get buckle sponsors... I was also thinking if the region can't affored money classes maybe we can do it that if you win you get your class money back and if you get second you get like $4.00 back or something??
