Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Futurity Selects New Location and Dates



Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Futurity Selects New Location and Dates

The Mid-Atlantic Saddlebred Futurity announces its new location at the North Carolina State Fair Horse Show, October 22 – 25, 2003, in Raleigh, N.C. The Futurity, established in 1998, has distributed substantial prize money to owners and nominators of young American Saddlebred horses over the years while previously located at the Penn National Horse Show and the Children’s Benefit Horse Show in Pennsylvania.

The desire to build on the established presence of the breed in the Southeast region of the United States, with the abundant number of breeding farms, exhibitors and enthusiasts, led the managers of the Futurity to review options in this growing region. Diane Hauslein, futurity secretary, states, “having our futurity at a large, publicly attended venue, such as the North Carolina State Fair, can only help to strengthen the visibility of our beautiful, talented and athletic young American Saddlebred horses to the general public.”

The Futurity’s presence at the North Carolina State Fair Horse Show will provide another avenue of promotion, support and rewards to American Saddlebred breeders throughout the actively growing region. Historically, the futurity has been very fortunate in having special contributors donate “added money” to the purse, which has resulted in increased nominations and quality of young horses participating each year. The same support is expected to continue in 2003.

For further information or nomination forms, please contact Diane Hauslein at 703-525-9238 or Denise Dinnen 703-503-3633. Nomination forms can also be downloaded from the website at www.mid-atlanticsaddlebred.org. The nomination deadline is September 15, 2003.
