After monitoring the recent situation and with the intention of better safeguarding the health and safety of our horses by allowing members to be able to conclude a vaccination cycle and/or organize a test for themselves and/or their horses, the 2020 NRHA European Futurity dates will begin on May 15th and will go through May 22nd. Horses will be allowed to move in starting May 12th but the arena will be available only from May 13th onward. In no way will the show be further postponed.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - The IRHA Board met in conference call yesterday evening Thursday 29 October and, despite the desire to complete the troubled 2020 show season plagued by the Covid-19 Pandemic, after intense days of analysis and discussion on all elements, aspects and numbers inherent to the possibility of keeping the Big Show at the end of November in Cremona, with great regret and displasure, the decision was made to postpone the entire Special Event:  4-year-old NRHA European Futurity, 3-year-old Futurity Irha-Irhba, and the finals of the Italian Championship hoping to be able to reschedule it for the end of February next year.
