Appaloosa Horse Club announces 2009 National Trail Ride Schedule

MOSCOW, Idaho—The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) is excited to announce the 2009 National Trail Ride schedule. The ApHC has established four week-long trail rides that take participants through some of the most historical and beautiful landscapes in America. Horses of all breeds, with the exception of the Chief Joseph Trail Ride, are welcome to join us in the wilderness for the ultimate trail ride experience!

The ApHC Trail Ride season kicks off with the Apache Land Trail Ride in Honobia, Okla., April 12-18. Applications are due Mar. 2. Participants will enjoy the hospitality of Jane and Riley Donica of Wild Horse Camp. All breeds are welcome on this trail ride.

The Land of Liberty Trail Ride will take place in Clarion, Pa., June 14-20. Applications are due May 4. Cook Forest Scenic Trail Rides will host this picturesque ride in a woodland forest. All breeds are welcome on this trail ride.

The historical Chief Joseph Trail Ride will begin in Darby, Mont. and travel to Big Hole National Battlefield of Montana, July 19-25. This ride retraces one portion of the 1,350-trek the Nez Perce made during their flight from the U.S. Cavalry in 1877 as closely as possible. Applications are due June 8. All horses must be registered Appaloosas.

Sheltowee Trail Ride is the final trail event of the year. This trail takes riders through the Daniel Boone National Forest in McKee, Ky., Oct. 4-10. Applications are due Aug. 24. All breeds are welcome on this trail ride.

The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) was established in 1938, with a mission of preserving, promoting and enhancing the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC has since registered more than 670,000 Appaloosas, which are known for their distinctive color, intelligence and even temperament. True to their reputation as an extremely versatile breed, Appaloosas can be found in nearly every discipline including racing, endurance riding and serving as reliable family horses. The international breed registry is headquartered in Moscow, Idaho, the heart of the Palouse region—the Appaloosa breed’s namesake and point of origin.
