Limited Halter Futurity - Logo 3

It's Almost Time for the 2013Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity. 

In 2001 the Limited Halter Futurity was created by a group of Appaloosa halter horse enthusiasts in an effort to spark a renewed interest in the Appaloosa halter horse industry.  This group of halter horse exhibitors was led by the late Doug Schembri. Doug’s idea was a simple one, create a marketplace for halter foals and yearlings each year through a program which would attract new, and reward existing, Appaloosa halter exhibitors. The program was designed to make cash and prizes available to both non-pro and open exhibitors who met the eligibility requirements of the Limited Halter Futurity program. 
At the 2010 Appaloosa World Championship Show, on the 10th anniversary of the Limited Halter Futurity, the futurity was renamed the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity.   With the renaming of futurity to the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity, an impromptu group of halter horse enthusiasts have once again assembled, to make sure that the Limited Halter Futurity program founded by Doug Schembri and others might continue as they envisioned in 2001.

At the 2011 and 2012 Appaloosa World Championship Shows, the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity awarded over $25,000.00 each year in prizes
among 8 different classes to limited halter exhibitors, including beautiful show halters donated by Kathy's Show Equipment.  

Top trainers have each donated one month's training to the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity.  These donated training services are being sold on a first come basis for $500.00 each, with 90% of the proceeds being donated to the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity.  The remaining 10% of the Trainers' Program proceeds are donated to the newly formed Appaloosa Crisis Fund.  Last year $1,200.00 was contributed to this new foundation from the proceeds raised in our Trainer's program.

The Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity was created by a grass roots marketing effort, led by Doug and the other halter horse enthusiasts that were committed to growing their industry.  As we move forward to our 13th year, we invite you to support the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity and the marketplace and incentives it creates for the Appaloosa halter horse industry.  Please donate to the Futurity, solicit donations from others, enter the futurity classes and get involved.  With your help we look forward to having a very memorable awards presentation at the 13th anniversary of  the Doug Schembri Memorial Limited Halter Futurity held at the Appaloosa World Championship show this coming October in Ft. Worth, Texas.

If you have any questions or you want to get involved, please contact Wilburn Archer, Jenifer Schembri, John Hardin or Keri Minden LeForce.  Thank you for your consideration and continued support of our halter industry.
