 How “Futurity” points are awarded:

The KMSHA/SMHA Futurity will be a one day event to be held annually during the KMSHA/SMHA International Grand Championship. The purpose  of the Futurity is so that everyone can watch and follow each year the “future” development of the offspring of our truly wonderful breed of horses. The Futurity can help us all as a gauge, so we all can follow the future of the breed from our “breed standard” point of view. Are we improving the characteristics of our breed?  How are our breeding Stallions and Mares doing? Are we developing more mountain horse characteristics with our spotted offspring?  This will be the most important competition of the year and so will the amount of KBIF points awarded. A minimum of 40% of the entire KBIF Fund will be dedicated for this event. All Stallions, Mares and their offspring must be nominated each year in advance of the Futurity. At minimum , 40% of total KBIF Fund will go to “Kentucky bred” and Nominated horses shown in the annual KMSHA FUTURITY Note: Weanling class will be the highest recipients of points (One and One Half points)  at the Futurity each year.  (No Geldings)

Distributions of Annual Incentive Fund Points:

The total amount of the annual KBIF funds will first be divided by percentage as shown below in divisions 1, 2, 3 and 4.

The total earned points for each division will then be added together and divided into the complete funds allotted for that division, giving a “point value”.

Your total number of points earned will then be multiplied by the “point value” giving you your total award.  (at this point we do not know total dollar amount of KBIF Funds awarded to the KMSHA so there is no dollar factor at this point.)
