ONE FUTURITY - TWO DISCIPLINES, WHAT A CONCEPT!
International Jumper Futurity Adds Dressage Option...

The International Jumper Futurity has announced a landmark decision to expand the existing IJF program to include Futurity classes for dressage horses beginning in 2006. The new program will allow stallions and young horses to be nominated for either discipline for a single, all inclusive fee.

Scott Hassler, Anne Gribbons and Mary Giddens DVM have been named to the Dressage Steering Committee which will oversee the development of the new program and establish the testing criteria for 4-year-old dressage horses. Read More >>>
