Futurity and Versatility

Futurity and Versatility

2-Year-Old Futurity: 4-H'ers with advanced skills in horsemanship are eligible to nominate a two-year-old horse for the Western Pleasure Futurity and Showmanship Classic held each year during the State Fair 4-H Horse Show.

Horses eligible for the two-year-old Western Pleasure Futurity must be totally green - that is, having never received any riding by ANYONE other than the 4-H'er who nominates the horse to the Futurity.

During the State Fair Horse Show, the horses will participate in three go-rounds of Western Pleasure.

3-Year-Old Versatility: The horses properly nominated as two-year-olds to the Futurity are eligible the following year to enter the three-year-old Versatility Class. Advice and counsel on the training techniques may come from outside, however, the 4-H member must do all the riding and work on the Versatility horse.
