Final wrap up from another great show at the 2018 Idaho Futurity







James Vangilder (Pictured) had never been to the Idaho Futurity before but after this week, he and his wife Marcia, have over 55,000 reasons to come right back next year. Vangilder's seven horses entered at this show earned right at $55,074 this week between Jame's accomplishments in the Non Pro & Amateur divisions and his trainer Matt Gaines in the Open.


It was a great ending to a very fun and exciting show at the 2018 Idaho Futurity wrapping up on Sunday with all the Non Pro and Amateur Finals. We'd like to thank all the staff and volunteers at this show who helped make this show the success it was and we can't wait to put this one on the schedule for 2019. Nampa, Idaho loves the cutters and the cutters love coming to this show every year. A special thank you to the City of Nampa and Chamber of Commerce who help make this show possible!!
