APHA Offers Registration Savings For Older Horses

overoThe American Paint Horse Association (APHA) is currently offering a more affordable registration special dedicated to older horses. Those with at least one Paint parent who are eligible for either Regular Registry or solid Paint-bred registration are impacted, and any APHA member may take advantage of the savings offer.

Horses with two Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred parents, commonly known as cropout horses, are not eligible for the registration incentive.

Horses 2 years old and older that are eligible for Regular Registry may be registered for $100, and horses 3 years old and older who are eligible for Solid Paint-Bred registration may be registered for $50. For members who choose to register online can save up to $400 when registering Regular Registry horses 2 years old and older, and $50 when registering Solid Paint-Breds 3 years old and older.
