Appaloosa Horse Club welcomes Deerfield Farm as Gold Level Sponsor

MOSCOW, IDAHO — The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) is excited to announce Deerfield Farm LLC as a Gold Level Sponsor of the 73rd National & 2021 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show.

For 40 years, Deerfield Farm has coached children and adults to be successful equestrians through their holistic approach that prominently features Appaloosas. Serving the greater Seattle area and Eastside communities of the Pacific Northwest, Deerfield accommodates all levels, from beginner to elite competition, and consistently produces Appaloosa champions at the highest levels.

Deerfield Farm is a family owned farm founded in 1979 by Sue Cummings-Schultz. The unique Deerfield Farm riding program was designed and developed by Sue. While she still owns the farmland, ownership of the business was transferred to Katie Hagen Sikes in April of 2019.

“We are grateful for Deerfield’s long-time dedication to and support of the ApHC, and thank them for their generous sponsorship,” said ApHC Executive Secretary Lynette Thompson.

Now in its 73rd year, the National Appaloosa Show is the longest-running, single-breed horse show in the nation. The first National Show was held in 1948 in Lewiston, Idaho. New in 2021, the National Show will award national points under each judge to count toward year-end and lifetime awards, and National Show champions will automatically qualify for the 2021 World Championship Appaloosa Show in that class.

The 73rd National & Youth World Championship Show will take place in Tulsa, Oklahoma, July 26–August 1, 2021. To view the show schedule and other important show information, please visit
