2024 CMSA Futurity and Stallion Incentive Program Non-Pro Application

To qualify to ride in the Non-Pro class for the 2024 CMSA Futurity or Derby, riders must pre-register for the event on the www.cmsafuturity.com website by July 31, 2024.  Completion of the application does not require registration for the event.  Please apply if there is any chance of competing at the Non-Pro level. 

A preliminary list of Non-Pro competitors will be publicly posted on the www.cmsafuturity.com website and the CMSA Futurity social media pages on August 4, 2024.  At that time, the window for formal protest will commence and end on August 15, 2024.  All protests must be emailed to info@cmsafuturity.com and include tangible evidence along with a $200.00 protest fee.  Details on protest payment can be obtained by emailing the above address.  If a protest is filed against a competitor, that individual will be notified via email and written letter.  

At the close of the formal protest period, the CMSA Futurity Board will review all protests. A final list of Non-Pro competitors will be posted on the www.cmsafuturity.com website and the CMSA Futurity social media pages on September 1, 2024.  Please remember that disqualification from the Non-Pro class does not exclude an applicant from participating in the CMSA Futurity. The only requirement is that the individual competes in the Open class.
