AFE Cup

Conditions and Judging

All of the foals born out of an Arabian Futurity Auction Breeding OR from foals born from a nominated stallion are qualified for the competition.
After purchasing and using the Futurity Breeding, the owner has to inform the Futurity organizers about the mare for which he used the breeding. All foals born out of an Auction Breeding are automatically nominated.

Additionally, all foals are allowed to compete if their sire is a Futurity Nominated Sire (please find a complete list at the end of the catalogue).
These foals have to be entered to compete at the Futurity Cup at least one month before birth. The first registration of all foals has to be done in an ECAHO affiliated studbook.

All stallion nominations are valid for 5 years. After this period, the stallions have to be re-nominated.

From 2006 on, the Futurity Cup will be only for Yearlings with the same conditions and qualification system.

Only horses that are born out of an Futurity Auction Breeding or sired by a Futurity Nominated Stallion are qualified. All horses born out of a Futurity Breeding are automatically nominated, and all others have to be entered at least one month before birth, e.g. if the date of birth is 30.05.2006, entry must be 02.05.2006 at the latest for the next Yearling Futurity 2007.
