We were excited to welcome so many new faces and equine to their first Pinto World Championship® show,” said Darrell Bilke, PtHA® Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Our Corporate Partners step up to the plate each year with the awards we give out; we could not thank them enough.”
Proving the Pinto World Championship® isn’t all about equine competition, many special family-friendly activities were held during the two-week show in Tulsa, Okla.

The Pinto Heritage Foundation also was able to raise $750 towards the Youth Scholarship Fund during the new Miniature Barrel Racing Calcutta Fundraiser.
