What is the Halter Futurity exactly?

This is a program where breeders showcase yearling and two-year-old foals sired by stallions that are nominated prior to the birth of their foals. Yearlings placing 1st through 10th place at the World Show win cash prizes! How can you participate? There are four easy steps!

 

The Halter Futurity Committee Chair, John Bennett is happy to answer questions and assist in completing your Futurity Nomination forms. If you need more assistance, contact AMHA today at 817-783-5600!

BREED, NOMINATE, SHOW and WIN

BREED:

Breed your mares to a stallion that is going to be Halter Futurity Nominated. 

NOMINATE:

Nominate the stallion by March 1st of the following year. For example, foals bred in 2019 and born in 2020 would need to have the stallion nominated on or before 3/1/2020. The current nomination fee is $150 per stallion annually. The AMHA is offering a discount in 2020: If you have not nominated a stallion in the past three years, your first stallion nomination of 2020 would be ½ price ($75.00).

The foal must also be Nominated, and this can be done one of two ways: 

  • Nominate the Mare while the foal is in utero (prior to birth) for a fee of $50

or

  • Nominate the foal up to 2 months after it is born for a fee of $150. 

After the foal is born, send in the Yearling Futurity Form in with the Foal Registration Application so the office will stamp the Registration Certificate as “Nominated for the Yearling Futurity.”

SHOW:

During the foal's yearling year, bring him/her to the World Show and enter a Halter Futurity class. There are no other World Show qualification requirements for the Halter Futurity classes!

There are 3 divisions available to show a yearling in: Yearlings may only show in one class in the division of your choice. 

  • Open 

  • Amateur

  • AOTE

  • AOTE Yearling Gelding

WIN:

Yearlings and two-year-old showing and placing top ten at the World Show will receive a prorated amount of the nomination dollars received for that year’s pot. Nominated Stallions receive 10% of the yearling winnings National Champions in each class have historically won a World Show Jacket along with their money prize.
