ApHC adjusts World Show qualifying guidelines for regional clubs

Dear ApHC Regional Clubs,

The ApHC Board of Directors has approved, effective immediately, an increase of the number of qualifying nominations for the World Championship Appaloosa Show from one nomination to five in each class.

Rule 703.A.1.
Under the regional club system, a regional organization officially recognized as an affiliate in good standing with the ApHC may qualify up to five of its top five horses for the World Championship Appaloosa Show in each class. In order for a regional club to be eligible to nominate horses for the World Championship Appaloosa Show under the regional qualifying system, that club must have sponsored, pointed or co-sponsored at least one ApHC-approved show in that qualifying year and that regional club may only nominate horses in classes in which such horses exhibited in that club’s sponsored, pointed or co-sponsored show.

In order to complete this process for this year, regional clubs will submit your regular nomination packet listing your top 5 horses in each class. All of the top 5 horses will be eligible to receive a World Show invitation in that class unless they have previously qualified through the national point system or from another regional club.

World qualifying packets will be available for download on the regional club page of the ApHC website.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
Best Regards,

Merida McClanahan

    I guess I should ask, does this still mean the 1 point rule is still in place? Meaning you can get a regional club nomination as long as you have earned at least one point??

    There was some discussion about changing it, but the one-point requirement remains in effect.
