What is the Futurity ?

The AMHA Futurity program was started in 1992 to recognize the ongoing commitment and dedication of breeders to the standard of perfection . All horses must be nominated to be a part of this program . To learn more about how to nominate your horse or to see if you own a horse that has been nominated , please visit www . amha . org .
To earn Futurity money , your nominated horse must enter Futurity classes at the World Show . At the 2016 World Show there were 32 Futurity classes offered , including AOTE , Amateur and Open Grand Championship . Every Top Ten horse in the Futurity classes receive a cash payback as well . The sire of each Top Ten horse also receives a percentage of the winnings , and that is how the Overall and the yearly Top Ten Futurity Sires standings are generated .
It ’ s easier than ever for your horse to earn money while he shows !
The Halter Futurity implemented an affordable pricing schedule :
