ApHCC 2009 ApHC Judges Permit Program

The ApHC Judges Committee has initiated a streamlined process for ApHCC (Canada) judges to receive a “guest judge” card in 2009 and, if they choose, to eventually become approved ApHC judges.

A Fact Sheet and Application is posted on the site. Completion of the requirements is the responsibility of the applicant, not the ApHC or the ApHCC. Documentation must be sent to the Appaloosa Horse Club. This program is a one (1) year window to allow ApHCC Judges to gain ApHC Judges’ card. If the applicant meets the requirements they will be considered an active ApHC Judge with restrictions to only judge ApHC shows in Canada for 2009.

    My mistake. It wasn’t posted because the material has been mailed directly to ApHCC-carded judges. I’ll probably ask that they be posted anyway – Monday.

    It would be nice for those of us hiring judges & being judged potentially by these ‘permitted’ judges to know what steps & costs are involved for these judge’s to get an ApHC permit. For instance do these judge’s have to pass an ApHC rulebook test?
    Thank you for your assistance finding out.

    Are we going to allow the AQHA, NSBA, NRHA, NCHA and other qualified judges to have a guest card? One of the major issues I have with showing Appaloosa is that many times I show under a judge who is NOT qualified. I am also seeing the age of the judges rising and no younger ones coming in to fill the shoes of those leaving. We NEED to encourage younger judges to get carded with the ApHC.
