BILLINGS, MT – Every year NILE sponsors two futurities for weanlings and yearlings that have been sold through the NILE Gold Buckle Weanling/Yearling Sale; every year since its beginning five years ago the numbers entered and shown have increased. This year there were 22 yearlings entered and 17 that came back to show. There were 26 entered in the two-year-old futurity and 16 head returned to show.
In the Yearling Futurity class the horses show at halter and then are let loose in a 60-ft. round pen. Winning first was Let There Be Rock, a very high-quality yearling owned by Doug Torgerson of Billings, MT.

In the Two-Year-Old Futurity, the horses are shown in three classes: Halter, Pleasure and Reining. This was a very strong class from top to bottom.

All of these two-year-olds will be eligible to come back and show in the Three-Year-Old Futurity sponsored by NILE next year.
