Performance Permit Color Incentive Fund

A full break-down of the money to be paid out this spring can be found on the site by clicking on the show, trail or racing buttons. The estimated total payout for 2008 activities is $46,500.

Total payout is divided into 20 divisions:
19 zones for regional show competitors in those zones; payout in each of the 19 zones will be for the year end high-point horses competing in open classes at any ApHC-approved regional club shows within that that zone. Horse must earn at least one point in a halter class and one point in a performance class.

20th division is split between ApHC Racing and Distance programs; 50% will go to the Race program — awarded to the year-end high-earning starter. 50% will go to the Distance program split between: Year-end high mileage endurance horse and Year-end high mileage competitive trail horse.

If there are no qualifying horses in a particular division, that money will be equally divided among all other divisions with qualifying horses and paid out in the same calendar year.

See the pdf document for complete details about qualifications, tie-breakers, etc.

    I hope that I understand this a colored horse from an App x App breeding? Is there and age limit to this? Anything special to be entered in to be eligible? Thanks for clearifying…

    The Regular (#) registration designation is the key. The intention, of course, is to reward colored horses. I don’t know of any age limit and the only other “eligibility” requirement is official entry in a show, race or mileage program. We track the points, placings and miles based on reports received from show management, etc. There is no separate nomination fee you would need to worry about.

    Hope that helps. And, as always, if I discover that I’ve provided the wrong information, I’ll let you know!

    Are the zones used the current zones within our territories? Will there be a way of tracking/checking on points for a particular horse throughout the year?

    This program needs to apply to ALL Appaloosas. The SOLID horses are paying this money and their is no need to exclude them. It would also be nice if some of this money was put into the World show to make it more appealing to go. Our regional shows are getting smaller because there is no incentive to even TRY to qualify for our World show.
