    Why Iowa Gold Star...

    Futurities are a way to do what you love while having an opportunity to make money at the same time…

    If you are already considering breeding your mare, consider how much more valuable a foal would be if he/she could show in a futurity and possibly win thousands of $$ over their lifetime?? ...wouldn't it be a lot easier to market a foal that has this money earning potential than one that doesn't???

    Small breeders are starting to understand the power futurities have to increase market potential and to fund their horse activities -- More and more people are looking for stallions linked to successful futurities when choosing a mate for their mare. More and more people are seeking grown horses that are eligible to show in the big futurities around the country so they can win money back while doing what they love -- showing.

    Anyone who has questions about the Iowa Gold Star Futurity, please feel free to call or email us ANYTIME. We can explain the benefits of getting involved in this phenomenal program.
