Performance Permit Program

Be sure to check the recently added button at the top of home page for information about the Performance Permit Program for horses registered with the ApHC in the non-characteristic (N) category. In addition to an explanation of eligibility, you’ll also find a downloadable application form.
Beginning January 1, 2007, the Appaloosa Horse Club will issue Performance Permits to ApHC-registered, non-characteristic (N) Appaloosas. Permits allow non-characteristic Appaloosas, regardless of parentage or age, to show in ApHC-approved and sponsored events as well as race with results counting toward ApHC race awards. Once a permit is issued, it remains in effect for the life of the horse, regardless of ownership changes.

For a one-year introductory period, January 1 through December 31, 2007, eligible Appaloosas may enroll at the applicable weanling fee, regardless of age. These introductory enrollment fees shall expire at the end of 2007 and the applicable fees for yearlings and older horses will apply beginning January 1, 2008.

Aged Horse Special
Prior to applying for Performance Permits, Appaloosas must be ApHC-registered. If you own unregistered, non-characteristic Appaloosas now is the prefect time to register them, as the ApHC Registration Department is running an Aged Horse Special, which offers reduced rates on registration for older Appaloosas.

    Just a note to say The P-P program will be a big assest to the ApHC. Since previoulsy Appaloosa to Appaloosa solid foal can be shown, specators at the shows will have no way of knowing if the solid horse being shown is from Appaloosa to Appaloosa or from Appaloosa to an approved breed since both are solid.
    How the ApHC handles the money received from the P-P program is important. I think the ApHC should keep 30 per cent and then payback 70 percent, to colored horses only, for National Points earned at Regional clubs. A ceretain amount per point. This will be an incentive to buy an Appaloosa horse and show it at Regional shows.

    I like the idea of getting the older horses registered, it will help increase the ApHC numbers in different ways.

    Keep up the good work in promoting the Appaloosa horse.
