Latest News from The Big Sky Fox Trotter Association

BSFTA Annual Horse Show for 2020 has been CANCELED!!!!!

To our valued members and exhibitors,
This message comes to you at a time and under conditions that few could have envisioned earlier this year when we all sat down at our January meeting and began planning our 2020 year for our wonderful affiliate. After discussion with the board as well as the show committee about the impacts of COVID-19 on our community, families and sponsors it was agreed that it was in the best interest of the club financially and all the participants to cancel the Annual June Breed Show for this year. We have given it as much time as we can to resolve to a manageable state that would allow our event in a safe and timely manner, that has not happened. Many of our members and participants/show staff work in the medical field and at this unprecedented time would be required to quarantine before and after the event not to mention the hardship this would put on our out of state participants who would be required to do the same. While we sincerely regret these measures as it is the highlight of our year to see all of you and the beautiful horses we all hold close to our hearts we feel this is the most prudent step to make. Our local clinics and trail rides will continue with Lord willing a fall gathering on the drawing board for everyone taking place. 
Please if you have any questions or concerns contact me at 406-529-3459 or
Erika Capp  BSFTA President
