2018 Youth & Open Futurity Results​​

     The futurities are designed to appeal to Sugar Bars Horse breeders, owners, trainers and exhibitors.  A horse can be shown in the yearling halter futurity, and then in the Ranch Horse Versatility Futurity as a 2 & 3-year-old.  A horse can be shown both in the open and youth divisions.  To be eligible to participate in the Sugar Bars Legacy Sale Yearling Halter Futurity the horse must have been sold as a weanling through the Sugar Bars Legacy Sale the year preceding the futurity and must have changed ownership- eligibility will follow the horse.   To be eligible to participate in the Sugar Bars Legacy Sale 2 & 3-Year-Old Ranch Horse Versatility Futurity the horse must have been sold as a weanling or a yearling through the Sugar Bars Legacy Sale the year or 2 years preceding the futurity and must have changed ownership- eligibility will follow the horse.  If the horse wins as a 2-year-old, then it becomes ineligible to compete in the Ranch Horse Versatility Futurity as a 3-year-old.
