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.
