Evolution

THE BEGINNING
It all started with an idea. Brandon horseman Neil McLeod had seen a similar program in the U.S. and thought that it was something that could be implemented in Manitoba. He called together a group of horse breeders and told them about this crazy futurity that took half the monies paid out for weanlings at a sale to create a lucrative pot, which would be paid out when they were two year olds. Only horses sold at the weanling sale would be eligible to return to compete at the two-year-old futurity. The horses would be judged for conformation, under saddle on the rail and on how they performed a simple reining pattern geared towards two year olds. The futurity would also differ from other horse shows because the horses would never leave the ring from start to finish of the three phases.

THE EVOLVING OF THE MANITOBA SUPERHORSE 50/50 EVENT
The Manitoba Superhorse 50/50 Futurity is a success story unparalleled in western Canada. It's success has been dependent upon the support of the breeders who bring their good weanlings to the sale each fall and give half the selling price back to the futurity pot. It's success has been dependent upon the support of the buyers who pack the stands each fall as they bid on the weanling they think will come back and win the two year old Futurity. The Manitoba Superhorse 50/50 Futurity has been a phenomenon in the horse industry with the futurity pot growing to make it the richest futurity in Western Canada.

THE CONTINUATION OF THE EVOLUTION OF THE MANITOBA SUPERHORSE 50/50 EVENT
As the Manitoba Superhorse event continues to evolve the concept and purpose of the program has stayed true to its beginnings::
The Concept ….. Of the Superhorse Organization is to promote and enhance the versatility and quality of today's young horses.

The Purpose ….. To train and develop all horses in a humane manner, protecting at all times, their physical and mental potential.

As the Manitoba Superhorse 50/50 sale and futurity moves into its 25th year we invite all horse enthusiasts to take part in our event and participate in the future evolution of the event. This page is dedicated to celebrate the membership, people and of course the horses who have been involved with this event over its 25 years.
