Appaloosa Horse Club

Regional Clubs

ApHC Regional Clubs

There are 80 regional clubs nationwide. Regional clubs are local clubs across the nation that are officially recognized representatives of the Appaloosa Horse Club. They are groups of people who get together for the common purpose of riding and being involved with Appaloosas. These clubs have many interests including showing, trail riding, riding in parades and participating in the many disciplines that the versatile Appaloosa horse can adapt to. Whether it is cattle events, reining, cutting, jumping, trail riding or pleasure events that you’re interested in, there is a regional club near you who can assist you in becoming involved.
