40th Annual Wisconsin Futurity Features Return of Dimaro Bronze Trophies





The Wisconsin Futurity Horse Festival is set for its 40th annual event, September 17-20. The first ever edition to be held in the brand new New Holland Pavilion will feature the return of the gorgeous Dimaro bronze trophies. This year’s winners will all receive a beautiful sculpture of World’s Champion of Champions CH My Wonder, owned and shown by Nancy Leigh Fisher and trained by Hollow Haven Farm. There is not a more coveted and treasured horse show trophy than these Dimaro bronzes, long a tradition at the Wisconsin Futurity.

The class offerings at this year’s show have been expanded to include open breed classes, with a qualifier and championship for both Open English Pleasure and Open Pleasure Driving. Additionally, the Wisconsin Futurity offers one of the most complete pleasure horse divisions in the country, featuring divisions for Limit Horse and Limit Rider as well as championships.

The New Holland Pavilion is on the same grounds as the show has been held, but this new facility is all under one roof. A spacious show ring and matching warmup ring are located right next to the stabling area, making it easy to work and show.

The Dr. Rick Luft Limited Breeders Weanling Stake will feature over $42,000 in prize money this year, carrying the torch as the first of its kind in the Saddlebred world.
Make your plans to attend the show! Rooms are still available at the Holiday Inn Express, Sheraton, and Super 8 under a room block for the horse show. For more information, contact show manager David “Tuffy” Owens at 602-579-3738 or davidwowens@hotmail.com or visit www.WisconsinFuturity.com.
