The 2012 World Championship Appaloosa Show will be broadcast live in a pay-per-view format.

The first time that you pay the viewing fee you will be asked to create a user profile that you will use to login to view the show. The same login can be used to view both arenas if you choose to purchase viewing for both arenas.

The John Justin Arena one-time pay-per-view fee is $4.99 and the Watt Arena onetime pay-per-view fee is $1.99. Tip sheets and links to set up your pay-per-view profile can be accessed here.

STALLION BREEDING REPORT DEADLINE IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

FILING STALLION BREEDING REPORTS-SIMPLIFIED!

Members owning Appaloosa breeding stallions now have the opportunity to file annual stallion breeding reports online.

Go to www.appaloosa.com
Log into the Members Only section;
Select the "My Stallion Reports" menu option; 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. Do not submit reports online and send hard copies to the ApHC as you will be charged for both reports and fees are non-refundable. All online 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.
