ApHC Board meeting notes

small-web-bannerIn response to some inquiries we’ve had in the office, here are a few excerpts from the Board of Directors meeting last week in Jackson:

Offspring of erroneously registered parents
Amended and approved a motion to protect “innocent third-party owner(s)” of offspring that are the product of a breeding of previously eligible parents that took place prior to date of cancellation of the Certificate of Registration of such parent or parents, such offspring are eligible for registration; however, any previously issued Certificates of Registration for such offspring shall be recalled to designate the pedigree behind the ineligible or cancelled parent(s) as “Unknown.”

World Show qualifying
Effective September 1, 2009, An exception may be made to the one (1) National Point requirement if it is documented on forms requested from and provided by the ApHC and submitted by the owner of the horse by the World qualifying point cutoff deadline that the horse was entered and attempted in good faith to earn points under at least five (5) different judges in that class during that qualifying year but could not earn the required one (1) point due to lack of other entrants in that specific class.

Regional Club application
Charter application from Central Prairie Appaloosa Club in Illinois was not approved.

International Charters
Panama Appaloosa Association was approved as an International Affiliate of the ApHC.

The Dubai-Gulf Cooperative Council Club was approved as an International Affiliate of the ApHC, subject to receipt of required documentation by October 15, 2009.

The Board revised the APEX program to offer $10,000 payouts in the currently established APEX categories, but replaced Just for Pleasure with the NSBA World Championship in the Two-Year-Old Open Western Pleasure category for 2009. All other payouts are terminated. The program will be evaluated to determine any implementation beyond 2009.

The Board authorized the ApHC President to enter into an Employment Agreement to continue Steve Taylor’s employment as ApHC CEO effective August 1, 2009.

Increased registration fee for pedigreed gelding to $50, effective January 1, 2010.

Extended the Canadian re-registration window indefinitely.

    I feel it was a good idea for the club to do the exemption on classes. There are certain classes that it is just difficult to get qualified in, especially if you are the only one in the region who participates in those classes. What about the classes that aren’t held in our region? In my case, the closest show with cattle events in 10+ hours away and over 500 miles. I would love if the board could look into a better way for people to qualify if the classes aren’t held within a certain radius.

    Will the ApHC be offering the FPD halter classes at the worlds since they were/have been offered @ the nationals? & if so what about the qualifying there for the horses, since many regional clubs don’t offer them to exhibitors with FPD registered horses?
