ASHB Futurity Of Tennessee Policy Changes

The American Saddlebred Horse Breeder’s Futurity of Tennessee has established a new policy regarding shoes on weanlings and yearlings showing in the Futurity.  Weanlings and yearlings will be required to show barefoot.  Shoes are prohibited in these classes. Two-year-olds and three-year-olds may still be shown shod as in the past.

The ASHB Futurity of Tennessee is held during the Morristown Charity Horse Show and features classes for weanlings, yearlings, two-year-olds and three-year-olds with in-hand classes open to professionals and some limited to amateurs. Nomination is required for participation in the Futurity. Nomination forms and complete rules are available online at

Dates for the 2016 Morristown Charity Horse Show are October 7-9 at the Walters State Great Smoky Mountains Expo Center, White Pine, Tenn. The East Tennessee Saddlebred Association (ETSA) also holds their ETSA Harvest Breeder’s Jackpot during Morristown Charity. Weanling and yearling classes in the ETSA Harvest Breeders Jackpot will also require weanlings and yearlings to be shown barefoot. Shoes are optional on two-year-olds. All Jackpot classes are in-hand and open to professionals and amateurs. Nomination is not required to show in the Jackpot.  Entries pay an entry fee which goes in the pot for each respective class and ETSA adds $500 to the pot in each class. All money is paid out on a percentage basis.

The closing date for nominations for the ASHB Futurity of Tennessee is May 15. To request nomination forms and rules for the Futurity, contact Dianna Pearson at or call 865-607-6018. Forms are available online at
