East Coast Halter Futurity expands to include Performance Halter Division

Organizers of the East Coast Halter Futurity have announced the expansion of the program to include a division for Performance Halter starting in 2018.

Up until now the East Coast Halter Futurity has been strictly a Halter Futurity that provides halter enthusiasts a place to showcase their halter horses and promote the Halter horse industry. However, with addition of Performance Halter classes to most show programs, organizers felt there was a demand for this class and wanted to provide a venue in which performance bred prospects could be showcased at a younger age and stallion owners could showcase their performance bred prospects.

To be eligible for the division:

1.) The Sire or Dam must have their Performance ROM or have produced a Performance ROM earner for their offspring to qualify for the Performance Halter Division. At time of foal nomination proof of this must be sent in with the paperwork.

2.) If a foal that qualifies for both divisions (Halter & Performance Halter) at the time of foal nomination you must choose the division in which you want to show.

3.) Once the Division is chosen then that foal can show their respective Open, Amateur, Youth, and Color class for that division for that year.

4.) The set Division chosen is only for that year. For example, they could choose to show the halter division as a weanling then come back as a yearling and show the performance halter as long as they meet the above stated requirements.

Classes Offered:
* Weanling Performance Colts
* Weanling Performance Geldings
* Weanling Performance Fillies
* Amateur Weanling Performance Colts
* Amateur Weanling Performance Geldings
* Amateur Weanling Performance Fillies
* Youth Weanling Performance Geldings
* Youth Weanling Performance Fillies
* Yearling Performance Stallions

* Yearling Performance Mares
* Amateur Yearling Performance Stallions
* Amateur Yearling Performance Geldings

* Youth Yearling Performance Geldings

* Performance Color Class

* All funds will be kept separate between futurities.

5.) Stallion Owners nominate their Stallion yearly. Making all Weanlings and Yearlings Sired by said Stallion eligible for the Futurity if their service sells in the Stallion Service Auction or the Stallion Owner chooses to pay to nominate said stallion.

6.) If your Stallion sells, you as the Stallion owner receive:

– 1 Free Class Entry of your choosing.
– 10% of all offspring earnings
– Tons of Free Advertising

If you as the Stallion Owner are unable to attend the ECHF for some reason you would be allowed to transfer your free entry to any one of the offspring from that Stallion that would be showing at the Futurity. A transfer costs $100.

We hold the SSA online with Professional Auction Service and it runs from Jan. 1-24. The service can still sell after those dates. There is no cost to stallion owner if service does not sell. At that time, the Stallion owner can pay to nominate their Stallion themselves if they so choose. Two options are available:

  • $500 nominates your stallion and you receive one free entry.
    • $850 nominates your stallion and you receive two free entries and a banner hung up at the show.

This Futurity also runs in conjunction with the Virginia Color Classic Futurity so if you also nominate to that Futurity as well you get two futurities at one show.
