Another ApHC Member Advantage!

The ApHC is pleased to announce that members owning Appaloosa breeding stallions now have the opportunity to file annual stallion breeding reports online.

To file your Appaloosa stallion breeding report(s) online simply log into the Members Only section of the ApHC website and select the "My Stallion Reports" menu option.

To create your stallion breeding report(s), click on the "Create New Stallion Breeding Report" button and enter the requested information.

To update, delete, or add information to a report that has already been created simply click on the "Edit Report" link next to the open report that you wish to change.

On the My Stallion Report webpage you will see a listing for Open Reports and Submitted Reports.

Open Reports are stallion breeding reports that you are currently entering but have not completed or submitted. You have an ability to enter breeding information throughout the year and the system will retain all information. Just remember to submit the report prior to the November 30th deadline so late fees will not be incurred!

Submitted Reports are reports that you have submitted online to the ApHC for approval. Once your online stallion breeding report has been verified as being correctly filed it will be uploaded for you to view via the Web.

Users are required to pay stallion breeding report fees at the time of submission. All submitted stallion breeding reports will automatically have work orders allocated to them as proof of your payment. Any reports submitted after the November 30th deadline will be subject to late fees.


America's Favorite Trail Horse, Season Two

News flash from the American Competitive Trail Horse Association

Season 2 of America's Favorite Trail Horse will be completely new! The emphasis this season will be on the horse/human interest story. Every equine and their human partner have a story, a partnership, a bond... we want to hear it! We want to broadcast it to the world and show how awesome the great American Trail Horse is, and we want you to tell us your journey! Each horse and rider in the Finals will be showcased in one of thirteen one-hour episodes. America will vote for their favorite horse during 10 voting episodes, and then America votes again for their favorite from the top winners to crown America's Favorite Trail Horse 2012!

Dozens of live auditions will be held all over the United States. By registering early, you will reserve your spot and have priority in selecting your audition location.

Season 2 brings some exciting changes. We have designated two divisions to accommodate different levels of competition. The divisions are professional and pleasure. Everything you need to know is outlined in our details section at

We're told by the folks at ACTHA that they would especially like to have more Appaloosa riders participating in this year's auditions. Who knows, you might be a TV star!
