The inaugural East Coast Halter Futurity was a success, says Marcy Walker, vice president of the organizing committee and a founder of the show.

“We all worked together to make this dream happen,” she says. “We wanted a Southern hospitality-type show where it did not cost a fortune to show and was a comfortable atmosphere for everyone to have fun, and win money and prizes.”

The East Coast Halter Futurity distributed $28,000 in prize money in 17 futurity classes. The show included a double-judged AQHA halter show and maturity classes.

Judges for the inaugural event September 6 in New Jersey were Linda Pigg, Greg Holden and Ronald Stratton.

Other members of the founding group are:

Glenn Gieschen, chairman
Tiffany Miller, president
Robin Slade, treasurer
Jim Scarpa, secretary

For 2015, the show will move to North Carolina, Marcy says.
