AVOID RUSH FEES

The ApHC wants to do everything we can to alleviate extra expense for our members! With show season 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!

Hr

REGISTRATION FEES

ApHC members can register fillies and colts for a registration fee of only $30 as long as the application is postmarked between their foal date and 6th month foal date. After their 6th month foal date to their 12th month foal date the fee increases to $50. After their 12th month foal date to their 24th month foal date the fee increases to $100. For example, if your foal was born March 5th, you have until September 5th of the year foaled to have the registration application postmarked and to register the foal for the $30 member fee.

Pedigreed geldings can be registered for only $50 while hardship geldings and spayed mares can be registered for only $100. Appaloosa enthusiasts are encouraged to take advantage of the Aged Horse Special and register Appaloosas over two years of age for only $150!
