The American Hackney Horse Society is pleased to announce that the AHHS National Breeders’ Pony Futurity programs have been moved to the All American Classic Horse Show September 3-7 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s futurity program will include a minimum of $20,000 in prize money paid directly to the prize winners. This program includes in-hand classes for weanlings, yearlings, and 2-year-olds in addition to performance classes for 3-year-olds. Stallion and Mare nominations were due April 15, 2013, and weanling nominations are due by July 1. For this year only, there will be a buy-in provision in effect for yearlings, 2-year-olds, and 3-year-olds. Information and money for the buy-in is also due by July 1. Contact the AHHS for details.
Additionally, the All American Classic will be hosting the AHHS Limited Breeders Stakes for the 16th year. This program will be held on Thursday night of the show and will offer an in-hand class for the weanlings and a performance class for eligible 3-year-olds. Over the years, this program has awarded nearly $300,000 in prize money.
The All American will also host an entire lineup of UPHA Classics classes for the Hackney Ponies to qualify for the Classics at the UPHA American Royal National Championship Horse Show in November.
