ApHC All-Star Judge

Part of the program at the Color Breed Council Judges Seminar in Oklahoma City is the presentation of awards for various judging anniversaries. At this year’s event last week, the Appaloosa Horse Club was especially pleased to offer an engraved plate to Roland (Pete) Wood of Ocala, Florida. Pete has been a carded judge with the ApHC for 55 years! We had to come up with a new category of award since this doesn’t happen too often. Shown with Pete as he accepts the honor is Ray Burchett, ApHC Judges Committee Chairman. It’s also worth noting that Pete has been a member for 60 years. Thanks Pete – and congratulations!

    So, Steve, since you posted this I will ask you. Why, if he is an appaloosa judge, do all these horses winning in these ApHC shows look like quarter horses? I thought this was an appaloosa club? No wonder ApHC has lost nearly 2/3 membership in the last 10 years!
