The Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Gelding Futurity & Auction
Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association
Futurity Payouts to the Breeders and New Owners!
We regret to inform you that the 2016 Arabian Foal Festival will be on Hiatus.
The popular Arabian Foal Festival has been put on a Hiatus for the 2016 show season. Unfortunately due to county permits and insurance our location will not be able to accommodate the 2016 show. With the limited time available to make the necessary changes the decision was made by the Arabian Foal Festival Board to postpone the majority of the 2016 Show. The Santa Ynez Futurity Gelding classes WILL STILL BE HELD AT A DATE AND LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED. That will include a Halter Class for the Yearling Geldings, an In Hand Trail Class for the Two year old Geldings and a Ridden Trail Class for the Three year old Geldings. All three classes will continue to be awarded prize money of a combined total of over $34,000 for the Santa Ynez Futurity with checks being given to the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners of their classes.
We will make public the dates for the show as soon as they are solidified.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Arabian Foal Festival Board
Kelly Elm, Greg Gallùn, Doug Dahmen, Henry Metz & Bart Van Buggenhout
