The World Conformation Horse Association has chosen Springfield, Illinois, as the host city for the 2016 WCHA Breeder’s Championship Futurity, set for September 23-25. The WCHA Futurity will still be held in conjunction with the Big Money Futurity. 

“We are pleased to announce that after listening to our exhibitors the WCHA Breeder’s Futurity Committee has given much time and consideration to determining the location and dates for the 2016 WCHA Futurity and determined it was in the best interest of all to move the Futurity to Springfield, Illinois,” said Greg Holden, World Conformation Horse Association president. “Much time and effort has been spent by the WCHA Breeder’s Committee to help grow and improve our industry, and we think a more central location will impact the growth of the WCHA Conformation Futurity and WCHA Ranch Horse programs, introduced in 2015.”

The WCHA Futurity program is open to stallions registered by the American Quarter Horse, American Paint Horse, Palomino Horse Breeders and American Buckskin Registry associations, as well as the Appaloosa Horse Club. Any weanling and yearling offspring by 2016 WCHA Futurity-enrolled stallions will be eligible to show.
