NATURAL AMATEUR FUTURITY RULES
 
The American Saddle Horse Breeders Futurity of Texas
NATURAL SADDLEBRED AMATEUR DIVISION ENTER NOW
GENERAL PROVISIONS
Membership Dues: $20.00
 
Texas Natural Saddlebred Amateur Division (TNSAD) General Rules
Horses cannot have been trained by a Professional for at least 60 days prior to the show date. The Handler must be an Amateur (as defined by the AHSA) to handle a horse in a class for the TNSAD. The horse must be owned by an Amateur (as defined by the AHSA) to show in the TNSAD.
 
This is a training and learning Futurity to offer the amateur an opportunity to show their foals on a level playing field with other amateurs to yield a return for their efforts.
 
A professional presentation is not only expected but required, with proper grooming and attire for both horse and handler. The judge will be the same judge which presides over the Open and Amateur Futurity and will base his decision on the same criteria he/she would use for the Open and Amateur Futurity. The trotting pattern, presentation, and line up will be followed as in the Open and Amateur Futurity.
 
All entries from the TNSAD may cross enter into the Open and Amateur Futurities offered at the Texas State Fair Show if the nomination fees to these separate futurities are paid. However, they must show barefoot in the weanling classes and with a flat shoe and no pad in the yearling and two-year-old classes (if they intend to show in the TNSAD classes in the same year).
