Appaloosa Horse Club

Regional Clubs

ApHC Regional Clubs

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 that can assist you in becoming involved.

If you would like more information on how to start a Regional Club with the ApHC please submit a Regional Club Application. As well as read the Regional Club Handbook.

Exemplary Club Award

The 2022 Exemplary Club submissions have been scored. We highly encourage every club to take plenty of pictures and document events so your club can participate next year!  The ApHC only received four Exemplary Award submissions this year out of 100 active Regional Clubs.  Submission of an electronic scrapbook in the form of a PowerPoint is helpful in displaying these achievements and earns you additional points on your score sheet.  The ApHC will provide a very simple PowerPoint template to the ApHC Regional Clubs page, that can be filled out, keeping in mind that adhering to the judging criteria is more important than the overall presentation of your club’s scrapbook.
