The Appaloosa Horse Club, Moscow, Idaho would like to announce the Board of Directors approval to bring back appaloosa horses registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada (ApHCC) once again as an approved outcross.
To be added in the ApHC 2021 Official Handbook:
Rule 204.A.2.d “Appaloosa horses registered with Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada (ApHCC), Canada”
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
This means that the ApHC will now be able to consider for registration an appaloosa horse with an ApHCC registered appaloosa parent provided the other parent is registered with the ApHC with Regular (#) classification and the applicant can meet all other registration requirements, including filing sire, dam and/or DNA, filing late Stallion Breeding Reports, recorded owner(s) signatures, etc. Refer to the ApHC Bloodline rules for breeding requirements for registration with the ApHC.
For all rules and regulations of the ApHC, please contact the Registration Department at (208) 882-5578 ext. 300 or visit the ApHC website at

Qualify for the 2021 World Show through ACAAP!
New in 2020
– you can qualify for the 2021 World Championship Appaloosa Show by competing in the Appaloosa Competitive All-Breed Activities Program (ACAAP)!
See ACAAP rules contained in the 2020
of the ApHC for complete rules. This exciting opportunity is available in multiple class categories and is a great opportunity, especially for those who compete in hard-to-find disciplines like cutting, roping and jumping.
Avoid Rush Fees!
In these times of financial difficulty, the ApHC wants to do everything we can to alleviate extra expense for our members!
With show season finally upon us, it is important that your Appaloosa be registered, transferred, advanced, or entered in the Performance Permit program prior to showing. We don't want you to have to pay a RUSH fee in order to have your registration work completed in time for your show!
While turn-around time varies based on a number of variables, the ApHC suggests an allowance of six weeks for registration work completion. Please contact us at least ten days prior to your show date to be certain your work will not require a RUSH payment to be completed in time. Hopefully you will be pleasantly surprised to find your processed work in your mailbox earlier than predicted! But, as the saying goes, better safe than sorry. We look forward to receiving your registration work!
Contact the Registration Department with questions at (208) 882-5578 ext. 300
ApHC partners with
National Reining Horse Association
“We are excited to work together with the NRHA to increase Appaloosa horse participation in the sport of reining,” said ApHC Executive Secretary, Lynette Thompson.
Through this partnership, the ApHC and NRHA will work together to offer promotional and educational opportunities to their members.

If you or someone you know would be interested in donating an Appaloosa, the Appaloosa Museum would love to hear from you. There is an "exhibit pasture" on the museum premises giving summertime visitors the opportunity to get acquainted with the Appaloosa breed. Tickets are sold throughout the year and the drawing is held (usually) in October. In exchange for your donation of a raffle/exhibit horse you can receive a tax deduction along with the gratitude of all who appreciate and support the Appaloosa Museum.

COVID-19 Guidelines & Rule Changes for Regional Shows
As regional shows begin to be held again with more regularity, ApHC has developed a set of COVID-19 guidelines for show organizers to consider when planning a show.
Additional information is in the current issue of
and includes a check-list to help organizers get ready for your upcoming show.
It's more important than ever to work together to provide shows that can be safely attended by exhibitors. As equine industry professionals, we must set a good example for those in our industry to follow.
Perhaps most important is that once you've identified appropriate protocols for your event, be sure to spread the word to all potential participants so that they may arrive at the show prepared to comply.
Additionally, the ApHC Board of Directors has made the following recent rule changes effective for 2020 only. These are in direct response to COVID-19 concerns for the show year.
- In western showmanship and English showmanship, judges and exhibitors must remain at least 6 feet apart to maintain social distancing guidelines. Therefore, exhibitors should be instructed to stop at least 6' from the Judge when setting up for and during inspection. Exhibitors shall not be penalized for stopping this distance from the Judge. Judges should be careful to maintain social distancing requirements when inspecting showmanship horses.
- Show management should eliminate any obstacle in trail or ranch trail classes that will be touched by all exhibitors (example gate, drag, mailbox, slicker, etc.). Judges should review patterns in advance of the show to ensure compliance with this requirement. The gate in trail classes is a required obstacle at National and World ApHC shows. However, the board of directors has voted to eliminate that required obstacle in trail classes at the upcoming World Championship Appaloosa Show and Youth World Show.
- Because there is no way to maintain social distancing in the rope race nor to have ropes at the finish line that would not be touched by multiple exhibitors, the ApHC board of directors has voted to withdraw approval for this class for 2020 and will not hold this class at the 2020 World Championship Appaloosa Show.
