What exactly is Futurity? I know that you get awarded it at a show, but what is it?

Is it required to do well with a horse?

Thanks, as much info as possible is great.

[SIZE=14pt]The National Futurity is when you nominate a mare and stallion when you do a breeding. Then when the foal is born you have to pay a fee, you renominate the foal each year in order to show it at the national show for that class for example futurity colts and geldings of current year, yearling , two and three year olds. You continue to pay a sustaining fee to keep the horse in for the three years. If you place in the top 5 you get money back if there is 20 horses or less. If you place top 10 in a bigger class they pay you down to 10th place. We got 106. dollars for 9th with sweet tart out of 42 and we got 460 for 3rd with Carbon. The 3 year old year you compete in driving as well and that is the end.[/SIZE]

Okay, so if the mare and stallion was not nominated, then that means that the foal cannot go to nationals?
