Three Decades Strong

Started in 1980, The Tom Powers Futurity is the oldest continuously operating pleasure futurity in the World.

guysIt began with two classes, Two Year Old Western Pleasure and Two Year Old Hunter Under Saddle. Total payback the first year was $3500.00. There were about twenty five total entries. Classes were held at Tom's farm in Ada, Michigan either outside in the mud, or in the indoor arena 60 by 240 feet long and dusty.

Despite the unpleasant conditions, the Futurity continued to grow each year. Now entries are well over one thousand and paybacks over $275,000 plus trophies and awards.

This event is unique in that it still held outside in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Exhibitors seem to enjoy returning year after year to the excellent campgrounds and great footing that has made this arena well known throughout the industry. Weather is commonly a factor as thunderstorms, rain and wind have caused plenty of excitement in past years. An indoor arena is available but outside is where everyone wants to show their young entries, many for the first time.

2014 Futurity total paybacks over $318 000.00 + trophies and awards The futurity is held with three AQHA shows, a NSBA/AQHA Dual Approved Special Event and the Stakes Sales class and yearling auction.
