ENDURANCE BREEDER GAINS ELITE PREMIUM AT THE BEF FUTURITY


Shahkeira 2, photo by:Eclipse Photos

Former EGB Chairman, Jo Claridge of Phoenix Field Arabians in Bodmin, had a very successful outing at the Baileys Horse Feeds/ British Breeding/British Equestrian Federation (BEF) Futurity held on the 6th August at Tall Trees EC with her filly foal, Shahkeira.

The BEF Futurity Evaluation series aims to identify British bred young potential sport horses and ponies destined for careers in dressage, eventing, show-jumping or endurance, and may even find the Olympic Champions of the future.

Potential endurance horse, Shahkeira gained the highest score awarded to an endurance horse in the Futurity (9.23) and an elite premium.  An Elite premium indicates that the horse has the potential and outlook to perform at international level.

Jo who has been breeding horses for 23 years bred Shahkeira from her mare, Shahlua, she said, “Shahkeira is the sixth foal we have bred from Shahlua and the fifth one by R Ali Bey.  Shahkeira’s full brothers, Ali Shahrif and Ali Shahmahl did well at the Futurity and Ali Shamahl has just competed in his first pleasure ride”.  R Ali Bey was originally owned by Anne Hawk of the Woodlay Stud, he has now been sold to a private stud in Spain.

Jo went on to say, “I am thrilled with Shahkeira, she loved her day at the Futurity.  She is destined to be an endurance horse and will hopefully compete at a high level with my daughter Rachael.  I will do some in hand showing with her until she is old enough to be broken in”.

With entries limited to 60 at each evaluation venue, places are keenly sought after.  Entries are categorised by discipline with age groups for foals, yearlings, two and three year olds and each horse is evaluated in hand and loose in a safe indoor environment as well as undergoing a vet’s assessment. 

The BEF’s Head of Equine Development, Jan Rogers, said:  “The Futurity continues to go from strength to strength. The results at Tall Trees were very encouraging and we are finding that the horses our breeders are producing have the range of talents that are likely to be needed by the growing base of riders who wish to participate in horse sports”.

The BEF Futurity Evaluations are held at 16 venues throughout the UK and young horses go home with a BEF Premium (grade), a stylish rosette and a detailed, informative score sheet. An attractive certificate to keep and frame follows on after the event. All results are published on the fully searchable British Breeding website. www.britishbreeding.org.
