Do Futurity Geldings receive ILR-SD and UAP points too?  Absolutely! This means that the youth has three opportunities for points by entering only one show.

Can I keep showing my gelding after he is too old for the Gelding Futurity? Absolutely. The animal will still get ILR-SD and UAP points for its entire life, it is just too old for the Gelding Futurity.

 

Can adults participate in the Gelding Futurity? No, not yet, but that program is in development for the future, as well as a Youth Female Futurity and a Performance Futurity stay tuned for more info.

 

This is an awesome opportunity for youth and owners of geldings!
