Established in 2009, the APHA Breeders’ Futurity program was created to complement the APHA Breeders’ Trust program by increasing opportunities and financial rewards for Breeders’ Trust-nominated foals. The Breeders’ Futurity is a prestigious competition featuring the finest American Paint Horses and exhibitors in the world competing in a select slate of classes designed to showcase the offspring of APHA Breeders’ Trust-subscribed stallions and the mares bred to them.
Foals of 2009 were the first crop eligible to compete in the Futurity. The slate of classes in subsequent years grew right along with them; in 2010, yearling halter, longe line and in-hand trail were added and the performance classes began in 2011.
Starting in 2021 all Gold performance classes will be held at the APHA World Show held in the summer and the Gold and Platinum Halter classes will be held in the fall along with the WCHA Futurities.
