Solid Gold Futurity Announces Pleasure Series

Three western pleasure and two hunter under saddle classes join the futurity line-up May 25-28 in Lake St. Louis, Missouri.

From the Solid Gold Series

"Thank you for the overwhelming response to the Solid Gold Futurity Series launch! We have received calls from all over the U.S., thanking us for bringing back the Solid Gold and offering this type of event. Last week we kicked off the futurity with our halter division, and in 24 hours we had more than half the slots sold. Right now there are only 16 halter slots left out of the original 75 (25 slots per sex division), so anyone interested needs to contact the office quickly. Slots are sold on a first-come, first-served basis," said organizer Jennifer Sheriff. 

"Jim and Georgia Snow were the first to purchase three halter slots as soon as it was announced. The Snows have been very supportive of this effort and I would like to thank them for being the first slot owners," said Sheriff.

Jim and Georgia Snow commented, "We feel as breeders we should support our industry and there cannot be too many futurities. We are lifetime members of AQHA, the American Paint Horse Association, founding members of the World Conformation Horse Association, and we were fortunate to be part of the original 10 to start the Breeder's Halter Futurity. This new concept for a yearling maiden futurity presents a new avenue for showing and marketing our foals." 

Today we are pleased to announce the Solid Gold Performance Series. We are offering three western pleasure classes and two hunter under saddle classes, both open and non-pro. Performance classes will be in a nomination format with nominations now being accepted. The goal is to stimulate interest in our industry and promote maiden horses.

The Solid Gold Futurity is holding the all-breed Maiden Series in conjunction with the Missouri Quarter Horse Association's Gateway Classic AQHA Show (six judges) May 25-28, 2017, at Lake St. Louis, Missouri, and managed by Mark Harrell Horse Shows. The show schedule is currently being finalized and will be available soon. 

The Solid Gold is open to AQHA, APHA, Palomino Horse Breeders Association, Appaloosa Horse Club and American Buckskin Registry Association horses.
