APHAs Revamped Incentive Program Offers Big Paybacks For Talented American Paint Horses

FORT WORTH, TEXAS-The American Paint Horse Association (APHA)recently introduced exciting changes to its Gelding Plus program, which is designed to increase the value of registered Paint geldings. Originally created as a futurity incentive, the program has changed to instead promote aged geldings that are 4 years old and older as of Jan. 1, 2007. Each of the 11 approved APHA Zone shows and three international shows will offer $3,000 in added money throughout the year, for an annual payout of $42,000.

Awarded through APHAs High-Point Performance calculation system, the new Gelding Plus program provides the owners of these horses an opportunity to compete for bonus incentives through one of three options designated by each individual Zone Show Committee.

APHA is allowing each zone committee to tailor the incentive payouts this year to one of the three formats that best fits their individual event, said APHA Paint Programs Coordinator Jessica McDaniel. Geldings are an important part of responsible breeding practices, and we are excited to offer this special incentive program to promote outstanding aged Paint performance athletes.

The first event to implement the new Gelding Plus format was the recent National Western Stock Show, which held Paint classes Jan. 8 11 in Denver, Colo. The show paid out $1,000 each to geldings in three divisions.
