From the Elite Halter Futurity

A new halter futurity has been added to the 2016 All American Quarter Horse Congress, October 6-30 in Columbus, Ohio.

"We are pleased to announce that through a combined effort of the All American Quarter Horse Congress and the Elite Halter Futurity, we will be offering six weanling halter Futurity classes this year," said Dr. Scott Myers, OQHA Executive Director. "In a joint effort to help improve our industry, we are looking forward to working with Jennifer Sheriff and the Elite Halter Futurity. With her knowledge and experience we feel these Futurity classes will be a great addition to our show."

"I am pleased and honored to be working with the Ohio Quarter Horse Association to bring the halter industry this new Futurity," said Sheriff. "After many discussions with stallion owners, trainers and breeders, I felt the need for this type of Futurity. Our goal the first year is to have large payouts for all six classes. With the addition of the color breeds we will have additional bonuses and prizes."

The Elite Halter Futurity is open to AQHA, APHA, PHBA, ApHC & ABRA stallions. All weanlings sired by enrolled stallions will be eligible to show. Stallion enrollment deadline is June 15. Stay tuned for more information coming soon.
