Regional Appaloosa Experience Show Program

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) Board of Directors has approved a one year pilot program called the Regional Appaloosa Experience Show.

The key components of the program include direct funding support for regional clubs and national point fee waivers for youth exhibitors.

Established and new ApHC Regional Club shows meeting the program criteria may submit an application for approval to participate in this innovative pilot program. Shows approved for Regional Appaloosa Experience Program will receive up to $2,400 in financial support from ApHC, national point fee waiver for all ApHC youth classes, ApHC press release services and electronic promotion of selected shows.

Any show that is approved in this pilot program will offer ApHC-approved and all-breed youth classes for FREE! That means no entry fees for any youth exhibitor to compete in any youth class at the show.

The completed application along with supporting documents must be submitted to the ApHC by May 10, 2010 in order to be considered for the 2010 calendar year. The Regional Appaloosa Experience Grant Application can be downloaded from the ApHC website at by clicking on the Regional Club link or the Show Approval link.

The show must meet all regular show approval requirements (per rule 601 of the 2010 Official Handbook of the Appaloosa Horse Club). In addition to minimum mandatory class requirements for ApHC approval, the show must offer 5 all-breed youth classes (halter, showmanship, western pleasure, English pleasure and games).
