The Super Bowl and groundhog weren’t the only big news on Monday. The Ohio Quarter Horse Association announced that the All American Quarter Horse Congress Futurities will open to color breeds in 2015, in addition to changes to the Masters events.
The western pleasure and hunter under saddle futurities and stakes classes will be open to the following registries: AQHA, APHA, ApHC, ABRA, IBHA, PHBA, and Jockey Club.
Additional changes to the 2015 show include changing the Masters Western Pleasure from a slot class to a futurity class with no limits on the number of entries, and the same changes go for the Masters Hunter Under Saddle.
Entries for the futurity classes are due April 1st, and while the entry deadline for the stakes classes are August 25th.
For more information on these changes, visit the official website of the Quarter Horse Congress.
