NSBA Announces Color Breeders Championship Futurity

The National Snaffle Bit Association is proud to announce the creation of the Color Breeders Championship Futurity which will be held in conjunction with the NSBA World Championship Show and Breeders Championship Futurity beginning in 2018.

To be eligible to participate in the Color BCF program, a horse must be sired by a stallion who is nominated to the Color BCF during its foaling year.

If eligible, horses may be nominated at any time beginning as weanlings through their three-year-old year (4 to 6-year-olds may be enrolled until December 31, 2018).  Weanling enrollments begin at a one-time payment of $125 and increase with the age of the horse.  The Color BCF also offers a sliding scale for multiple foal enrollments.

The purse is funded by stallion and foal nomination fees collected each year. The stallion nominator receives 20%, the foal nominator receives 10%, and the foal owner receives 70% of foal earnings. In the event the foal ownership changes, the original nominator will receive the 10% earnings.

The current Color classes held within the Breeders Championship Futurity will be expanded over the next several years as foal crops move forward into the new Color Breeders Championship Futurity. Nominated horses are eligible to show from their yearling year to their six-year-old year. Yearlings may show in open and Non-Pro Longe Line. Western Pleasure is offered for the Open, Limited and Non-Pro divisions.  Hunter Under Saddle, Trail and Western Riding are offered for the Open and Non-Pro divisions.

An exhibitor may show as many horses in as many classes as they are eligible for in each division.  NSBA membership is required for all owners and exhibitors.

Stallions may be enrolled into the Color Breeders Championship Futurity as well as the Breeders Championship Futurity. Foals may be nominated into one or both programs providing the sire is enrolled in the corresponding program.
