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.
