2020 Year-End Champs Can Pick Their Own APHA Awards

Year-end award winners in the American Paint Horse Association (APHA) will have some options this year when it comes to what prizes they take home for APHA awards.

The association announced it will give 2020 year-end award recipients the ability to choose their preferred awards—and even upgrade to higher-value items—via award gift certificates for its PH Barn Door online store.

Officials said the top 20/top 10 winners and Honor Roll champions will receive custom trophy buckles to commemorate their wins. All other recipients will receive a gift certificate and free shipping code to the PH Barn Door. 

The gift certificate value will be based on all APHA awards and placings won—certificate amounts will be announced when final results are tabulated in February 2021. Recipients will receive an email detailing their awards and total value, along with their gift certificate, shipping code and link to the website to place their order.

Officials said the PH Barn Door will be adding more items from association sponsors to increase the variety of APHA awards available, including items like Cinch jackets, leather halters from Perri’s Leather, headstalls from Bob’s Saddles, and multiple award items from Schneider’s and State Line Tack.
