Region 12 Spotlight Futurity • Breeder & Stallion of Distinction Awards
The Region 12 Spotlight Futurity created an awards program to recognize and award the breeders and stallions who contribute in making the Region 12 Spotlight Futurity a success. The awards are presented to the Breeder of Distinction (for both the Halter division and the Performance division) as well as an award for the Sire of Distinction (for the leading Halter sire and the leading Performance Sire). Points are accumulated based upon the number of horses in the class at the time the gate is closed – breeders and stallions will individually earn points for every horse in the class that they beat plus one point for themselves.
The award ceremony will be conducted in the main show arena after all the Spotlight Futurity classes are completed. When a breeder or sire has reached a total of three distinction awards, they will be inducted to the Spotlight Futurity Hall of Fame and will no longer be eligible to compete for these awards.
