Houston County Horse Futurity
Houston County Courier
Plans are underway for the 2011 Houston County Horse Futurity, which will be held in conjunction with the 2011 Houston County Fair and Youth Livestock Show. Any Houston County student who is an active member of 4-H or FFA is eligible to participate. The deadline for enrollment to participate will be Sept. 15. The horse futurity is an educational program for youths interested in taking a weanling foal or two-year-old and preparing it to be exhibited at horse shows as well as to be ridden when it reaches maturity. Students are responsible for the care and training of their horse, and educational, as well as training and practice sessions will be conducted throughout the program. To be eligible for the 2011 futurity, all foals must have been foaled prior to May 1, 2010. Two-year old entries must be two by May 1, 2010. Entry blanks and futurity rules, as well as a list of area residents who have foals for sale, may be obtained from Patricia Lucas at Prosperity Bank, 1105 East Loop 304, Crockett, or phone 936.546.2265, 936.546.1404 or 936.545.8277.
