A proposal has been submitted to the Futurity Committee that seeks to add 5 year old POAs in all JPFC classes currently offered. The proposal also seeks to establish a new division exclusively for the 3 year old ponies, thus redefining the age break downs as 2 year olds, 3 year olds, and 4&5 year olds.
In consideration of the large number of classes currently offered at POA shows the proposal allows for the combining of the 2&3 year old divisions and all shows classified regionals or below. The separation of 2&3 year olds would therefore only be required at classics, West World, Congress, and the National Futurity.
This survey seeks to gather information from the general POAC population as to the support, or lack there of, for these proposed changes. In an effort to predict potential numbers of entry the survey also asks questions specifically to owners of ponies that participated in the National Futurity in 2016.
