ASPC Futurity

The Futurity is a breeding program designed to promote and encourage a breeder to breed the best quality show horse possible by selecting correct mares and using stallions to compliment the mares. It gives a breeder a chance to use his/her judgement. The ASPC Futurity includes a Classic/Foundation Futurity as well as Modern/Modern Pleasure Futurity.

The Classic/Foundation Futurity is a five year program (Weanling, Yearling, 2 Year Old, 3 Year Old and 4 year Old).

The Modern/Modern Pleasure is a four year program (Weanling, Yearling, 2 Year Old and 3 Year Old)

Please Note you may decide to nominate and sustain BOTH the Modern/Modern Pleasure and the Classic/Foundation Futurity but you are only allowed to show in one).

You must be a current member in good standing to enter the Futurity.
Foals MUST be Registered by November 1st of the foaling year.
