After the main events wrapped up August 7, Ford Youth World exhibitors let loose and had some fun with the Justin Boots Freestyle Exhibition, presented by Tener's. Participants competed in four different categories: showmanship, horsemanship, hunt seat equitation and reining. There was also a variety show division for those who wished to share talents outside of horses. Judges placed each division and no one walked away empty handed. First placed received a crystal trophy and $350 for Justin Boots, second place a plaque and $250 and third place a ribbon and $100. While the judges deliberated, Paige Wacker performed a tribute to her horse, who recently died, with a friend's horse Clearly A Goodbar.
