ASHBA Announces New Half Saddlebred Futurity for 2022

The American Saddlebred Horse Breeders Association (ASHBA) is proud to announce the establishment of
the ASHBA Half American Saddlebred Futurity! We will begin the program with an Open Weanling
Futurity for all 2022 Half-Saddlebred foals! Nominations are due April 30, 2022, with a single fee of $150 for
the foal only. The sire or dam must be a full Saddlebred. Simply register with the Half Saddlebred
and compete in the year 2022! The Half Saddlebred Open Weanling Futurity will be held at the
famous All American Classic Horse Show at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis in September

We will kick off the new year in style for this exciting program by hosting a Stallion Service Auction and
presentation on January 22, 2022, at Sunrise Stables in Versailles, Kentucky. Everyone is invited to join this
fun auction to be held at 10:00 am Saturday morning. Here’s an opportunity to purchase services to some
of the finest stallions ever offered. Get in on this new dynamic futurity by making a stallion service donation
for the auction immediately! A limited number of stallions will be presented at the auction for a charge of
$350 per stallion. To present stallions, please contact Melissa Moore (859-873-9129 or 859-533-6225),
Sandy Currier (832-244-5051), or Rick Wedel (812 204-7700).  

To add to the excitement, the Half American Saddlebred Open Weanling Futurity will have its own purse of
added money! Stallions of all breeds are being invited to donate a breeding service to be auctioned on the
same day as the All America Cup auction, January 22, 2022. The proceeds generated will fund the added
purse for the same year, 2022! 80% of the purse will be earned by the top 8 weanlings, while 20% of the
purse will be reserved for the stallions that donated their services and had weanlings in the top 8 places.
Any part of the stallion’s 20% not paid out will roll over to the succeeding year(s) for the participating

The Saddlebred over the years has been one of the most desired crosses for many breeds such as the Half
Arabian, National Show Horse, Friesian Georgian Grande, and most currently, the Dutch Harness Horse!
Now, with the Half American Saddlebred Futurity, the crosses are endless. The futurity will be open to
crosses all Half-Saddlebreds and looks forward to seeing how crossing opportunity with opportunity will lead
to growth and participation for all.
