Hall of Fame

Deadline to submit your nomination for the ApHC Hall of Fame is fast approaching—October 31, 2011.
The Appaloosa Horse Club Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize the unique contributions and positive impact individual horses and people have made on the ApHC. Each year, the ApHC Board of Directors votes on nominations received from the ApHC membership to determine which horses and people will be inducted. Since 1986, the ApHC Hall of Fame has been expanded to include Racing and Trail, and now consists of over 200 inductees.
Review Hall of Fame inductees or download the nomination package here www.appaloosa.com or contact Hall of Fame Coordinator at (208) 882-5578 ext. 274 or e-mail executivesecretary@appaloosa.com.

PHONE TROUBLES?

It's easy to update your phone number!
With cell phones being so popular, many people are moving away from land lines completely. If you no longer have a land line, or if you prefer to have the ApHC contact you by cell phone when necessary, please contact us to verify that we have your correct phone number on file. An update is easy! Just call us at 208.882.5578 ext. 500 and we'll make sure your phone number is immediately updated!



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 futurity season upon us, it is important that your Appaloosa's paperwork be up-to-date! Is your Appaloosa registered, transferred, advanced, or entered in the Performance Permit program? We don't want you to have to pay a RUSH fee in order to have your registration work completed in time for your futurity!

While turn-around time varies based on a number of variables, the ApHC suggests an allowance of six to eight 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!



ATTENTION STALLION OWNERS

It's not too early to file your 2011 Stallion Breeding Report!
If your stallion was used for ApHC breeding purposes in 2011, it's not too early to take advantage of on-time fees for filing stallion breeding reports; $25 plus $5 per mare. Avoid paying late filing charges and have your stallion breeding report postmarked by November 30, 2011. Late reports, postmarked after November 30, will be charged a late filing fee of $30 in addition to on-time filing fees. Stallion breeding reports are available at www.appaloosa.com. For additional information about how easy it is to file an annual Stallion Breeding Report, see Registration Q & A in the October issue of Appaloosa Journal.
