Mission

The mission of the National Belgian Futurity is to create and maintain a nationally recognized and revered venue to showcase both the breeding programs of its membership and the Belgian horse.

History

Since the NBF was established in 1994, more than 1800 horses have participated. The single highest paying premium-per-entry for any Belgian exhibition in the U.S. is attributable to the unparalleled support shown by the NBF.

Once again, this year’s Futurity has the quality entries and sound financial support necessary for a successful outcome. The NBF Committee wishes to thank all who have provided support for the program, including the breeders, exhibitors, corporate sponsors and individual donors. Best of luck to all participants in this year’s National Belgian Futurity.

What Else I Should Know

The National Belgian Futurity Show is held at the Indiana State Fair.

As of 2014 the NBF voted to do away with the additional fee required of Canadian bred horses to participate in the NBF program.

In 2014 the NBF will join the All-American Belgian program. The weanling stallion & filly classes (only) will be a “C” rated qualifying show.

New Regulation for Late Entries: Weanling are permitted to be nominated, as late entries up until the day of the show (Indiana State Fair).

There will be no return of payment. The right is reserved to reject any entry, and to disqualify any entry from competition for failure to comply with the conditions of the Futurity.

The judges for the Futurity will be chosen by the National Belgian Futurity Committee.

MANAGEMENT ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY TO REMIND NOMINATORS OF PAYMENT DUE. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR.

A copy of registration papers (front and back) must be sent to the NBF Secretary on all entries.
