BEF Futurity

Futurity - What is it?

The Futurity is the largest young horse evaluation programme in the UK. With capacity for well over 800 horses, the Futurity aims to identify British bred young potential sport horses and ponies destined for top level careers in dressage, eventing, showjumping or endurance, and may even find the Olympic champions of the future.

Horses and ponies are entered for the Futurity discipline they are bred to perform in, with age groups for foals, yearlings, two and three year olds. Each horse is evaluated in hand and loose in an indoor school as well as undergoing a vet’s assessment. Breeders value the Futurity because it allows them to get their youngstock out in public, but in a low stress enclosed environment.

The Futurity evaluations are held at around 9 venues throughout the UK every August. The young horses go home with a Premium, an attractive rosette and will be emailed a detailed, informative linear score sheet. They also receive a parchment certificate following completion of the series.

Futurity is sponsored by Baileys Horse Feeds and supported by the British Horse Foundation.
