ANNOUNCING 2 Special Foal classes for 2019:  the SSA Foal Futurity & an Open class.

 We will be holding both Foal classes at EVERY stop: no longer just one chance to participate in the SSA Foal Futurity. Both classes will run on an accumulator sheet with final results to be tabulated and announced following completion of the mini-tour. Entrants will receive their evaluation sheets. There will be both prize money and gifts to placings in both classes... goodies thanks to several amazing sponsors... full details of prizes to come once we have received all commitments. Placings/ribbons to 10th with a Champion and Reserve; prize money to 5th.

In this past year, the BC Chapter has lost two people who have been very important to our small group. We felt that we would remember them with naming the two foal classes in their honour as Memorial classes.

1. Michael Rabe Memorial SSA Foal Futurity - foals by 2018 SSA nominated stallions eligible to enter; $50 entry with add-back if not a winning bidder or stallion complimentary entry. Check the Inspections page for a list of nomnated stallions.

2. Lindsay Joyce Memorial Open Foal class - open to all CWHBA foals either already registered or bringing registration to the venue; $50 entry with add-back

Please contact our BC Inspections Co-ordinator Marilyn Powell now, to get your name on the list.


Foal Futurity:

The National Foal Futurity is held for the progeny of stallions nominated to the 2018 National Stallion Service Auction. NEW for 2019 we we will be running the Foal Futurity class at every inspection site on an accumulator sheet and awarding prizes at the completion of all inspections in the province.

British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province, is located on the Pacific coast, and has a land and freshwater area of 95 million hectares. It is Canada's third largest. The province is bounded by the U.S. states of Washington, Idaho and Montana in the south, Alberta on the east, the Northwest Territories and the Yukon on the north and Alaska on the northwest. British Columbia is characterized by mountainous topography as seen in the coastal mountain range behind the Thunderbird Show Park grounds in the foreground of our banner. Along with substantial areas of lowland and plateau country as well as an abundance of waterways, the province has many areas suitable for breeding and raising top quality Warmblood sport horses utilizing the best bloodlines available. Featured horse Viking, an FEI dressage competitor, is by Vulcaan, one of the first Canadian Warmblood stallions to be fully approved. The winning jumper featured is typical of the quality of BC bred Warmbloods competing at top levels in Canada and the USA.
