UBBI Youth Futurity Continues to Grow

The UBBI Youth Futurity program continues to grow and has added a number of new Youth members in 2013.  The program allows youth ages 9 to 18 years old to participate with a 2 year old bull.  Eligible bulls are any 2 year old that has NOT won any money in an open or sanctioned 2 year old competition.  Bulls competing and winning money in other youth organized competitions ARE eligible to compete.

“The UBBI is really excited about the growth of the Youth Futurity Series this season,” stated Randy Schmutz, general manager of the UBBI.  “These kids are taking this serious and are bringing some really tough bulls!”

The rules and guidelines of the Youth Futurity program state that the youth member must flank the bull, but can be assisted by the parent or guardian in the event the youth participant needs help to complete the flanking process.

“I really like the UBBI Youth Futurity program,” stated Bobby Stallings from Rafter D Bucking Bulls.  “It’s a true  youth futurity that allows a level playing field for these kids to bring bulls that have not won any open competitions.  They gotta flank their own bulls and they are learning responsibility and sportsmanship and you can see they’re having fun.  We’re planning on helping some youth next year with some of our two year olds!”

Plans are being made now to host a UBBI Youth Futurity FINALE on September 14th during the Don Gay Shoot Out in Palestine, Texas.  Details will be announced soon!
