- General Information
Dear CPF Participant:
The CPF program as it is currently structured has been suspended. When the CPF was first envisioned, the numerous national Young Horse programs that we see today did not exist. Programs such as the Jumper Development Series, the Canadian Young Event Horse Program, and Dressage FEI Young Horse classes now exist across the entire country at many venues and EC shows. Because of the many options offered to the horse showing public, the entry in the CPF fell by half in 2009. This decrease in entries makes the Canadian Performance Futurity no longer viable to run in its current structure.
We heard your comments about the CPF and value your opinion that you want an accessible young horse program. The committee recognizes that there is still a need for entry level young horse classes, and the CPF Committee is examining ways to grow and shift the focus provincially, with classes for young horses in each province, to make the program more available to all breeders and owners. Consequently, the CPF program has been suspended for 2010 pending revisions and change to become re-vitalized as a provincially based program, with national rules.
As a result of this decision, nomination fees related to 2010 and future competition years are being returned to the participants. In the case of horses that have had a recorded change of ownership, the CPF Administrator will make sincere efforts to identify who paid the nomination fees and return them to this person. In the case of 5 year olds horses (born in 2005) one-half of the nomination fees have already been paid out in 2009 to the four year old classes, therefore the return on these horses will be one-half of the nomination fees paid. For the CWHBA registered horses, the $5.00 weanling nomination was donated by CWHBA and will be returned there. The remaining fees will be calculated and returned to the owners.
If this program was of use to you and you would like to see a continuation of it in another form, please contact us and let us know that you would like it and your ideas on how to structure it and make it a significant program. We thank you for your participation.
