MMHC Futurity

Minnesota Miniature Horse Club Futurity Program

The MMHC Futurity program was developed several years ago to offer members a fun, easy and inexpensive way to highlight and promote their breeding programs. Mares are nominated, progeny sustained and an MMHC Futurity show is held annually. Prizes are awarded during the MMHC show, with cash prizes presented during the annual banquet in November. Weanling, yearling and 2-year old horses compete in Halter with separate Over and Under divisions.

In order to participate in the Futurity program and show, eligible horses must be sustained each year (weanlings, yearlings, 2 year olds, 3 year olds) for a fee of $20. Deadlines for sustaining are: May 1st 2016 for any horses to be shown in the 2016 Futurity show ( MMHC show, June 24th 2016 in Cannon Falls MN) ; OR Dec. 31st 2016 for eligible horses NOT being shown at the 2016 Futurity show.

If a class has less than six horses, the unawarded money will be added to the following year’s pot for that age group except for the 2-year old class.
