Dear RQHBA Horse Purchaser,
The Ranchers Quarter Horse Breeders Association would like to thank you for your purchase of a foal. Any foal purchased through the RQHBA Sale is eligible to compete in the
Don Brunner Memorial Yearling Futurity.
Don Brunner Memorial Yearling Futurity Information:
- To be eligible, the foal must have sold through the 2017 RQHBA Sale: eligibility will follow the horse.
- Yearling must show to two judges. In the event of a tie, one judge will be chosen prior to the show as the tie breaker.
- Held in conjunction with the Central States Fair, August 2018.
- Winnings will be awarded to the registered owner at the time of the futurity.
- Original papers are to be presented for show registration to verify ownership.
- AQHA membership is required.
- Showing expenses are the owner's responsibility (entry fees, stall, etc.).
- We will be paying three places: 1st pays 60%, 2nd pays 30%, and 3rd pays 10% of the futurity yearling money in all three classes: stallion, gelding, and filly.
