In addition, there is an exciting new scheme to recognise the performance of futurity graduates in the sport of endurance. The Endurance Futurity Graduate Scheme has been launched under the auspices of Endurance GB (EGB) to recognise the performance of endurance horses that are realising the potential identified at BEF Futurity evaluations when they were youngsters.

Rosettes sponsored by Phoenix Fields Arabians will be awarded to all futurity graduates registered with Endurance GB successfully achieving their first Novice, Open, Advanced and International (FEI) level at Endurance GB rides. This includes all horses graduating since 2009 when endurance first became part of BEF Futurity evaluations, and annually into the future. The scheme aims to recognise and encourage the breeding and early assessment of high calibre endurance horses, and their subsequent development by responsible owners and trainers to attain their highest potential.

It is also planned to award three trophies annually, sponsored by Hornshill Farm, to the highest performing horses at different levels and ages according to strict criteria in order to encourage careful and responsible development and protect horse welfare.

The resulting database of endurance horses evaluated at BEF Futurity events and subsequently graduating with EGB into equine athletes will be invaluable in guiding and tracking the breeding and development of performance horses for future competition at all levels.
