The Saskatchewan 50 50 Sale & Futurity
Integrating these two events gives the perfect atmosphere to stage and showcase the horse and rider's talents for breeders and owners in front of a grander audience.
The 50/50 Success
The Saskatchewan 50/50 Futurity & Sale's success has been dependent upon the support of the breeders who bring their yearlings to the sale each fall and give half the selling price back to the Futurity pot. The yearlings offered for sale represent many great foals from various consigners. Every horse in the sale is registered, representing the American Quarter Horse, the American Paint Horse, and the Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada, respectively. Every yearling selling in the sale automatically becomes eligible to compete two years later at the Futurity. The horses will be judged for conformation, under saddle on the rail and on how they perform a simple trail/reining pattern geared toward young horses. They can later come back as a 4 year old and older and compete in the Maturity class held every year as well.
In 2013, the 50/50 Futurity contestants competed for a purse of $10,425 that paid to the 10th place plus additional sponsored awards. The yearlings in the sale are presented by some of the most respected breeders in the equine world. Presenting the most popular bloodlines in each particular breed, all yearlings are well groomed, fit and ready to show. In addition, many yearlings are eligible for other incentive programs and futurities such as APHA Breeders Trust, Harvest Gold Futurity, AQHA Incentive Fund, MRCBA Futurities, etc. Its success has also been dependent upon the support of the buyers who pack the stands each fall as they bid on the yearling they think will come back and win the Three-Year-Old Futurity.
In addition, the Saskatchewan 50/50 Sale & Futurity recognizes that sponsorships are paramount and would like to extend their overall gratitude to our past sponsors. Without your continued commitment to our provincial event, our success would be minimized.
When events like this succeed, it in turn helps boost the equine community all around. Therefore we are kindly asking for your generous support. We look forward to discussing this sponsorship opportunity with you and to answering any questions you may have.
