The 2022 ASHBA Half Saddlebred Futurity will begin with an Open Weanling Futurity for all 2022 Half-Saddlebred foals! Nominations are due April 30, 2022, with a single fee of $150 for the foal only. The sire or dam must be a full Saddlebred. Simply register with the Half Saddlebred Registry and compete in the year 2022! The Half Saddlebred Open Weanling Futurity will be held at the famous All American Classic Horse Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis in September 2022. 

To add to the excitement, the Half Saddlebred Open Weanling Futurity will have its own purse of added money! The proceeds generated will fund the added to this year’s purse! 80% of the purse will be earned by the top 8 weanlings, while 20% of the purse will be reserved for the stallions that donated their services and had weanlings in the top 8 places. Any part of the stallion’s 20% not paid out will roll over to the succeeding year(s) for the participating stallions.

The Saddlebred over the years has been one of the most desired crosses for many breeds such as the Half Arabian, National Show Horse, Friesian Georgian Grande, and most currently, the Dutch Harness Horse! Now, with the Half Saddlebred Futurity, the crosses are endless. The futurity will be open to crosses of all Half Saddlebreds and looks forward to seeing how crossing opportunity with opportunity will lead to growth and participation for all.
