Colorful Appaloosas earn Green through Color Incentive Fund

MOSCOW, Idaho—What’s an Appaloosa lover’s favorite color? Green—and Appaloosa owners and breeders across the nation are earning plenty of money with the Appaloosa Horse Club’s (ApHC’s) Performance Permit Color Incentive Fund. More than $45,000 was awarded to owners and breeders of 78 top-competing Appaloosas for 2008.

Performance Permit Color Incentive Fund payout comprises 20 divisions: the first 19 divisions, one for each ApHC geographical zone, are for regional show competitors, and the final division is split between ApHC racing and distance programs.

Want to get in on the action? The only requirement is to show a regularly (#) registered (characteristically colored) Appaloosa in ApHC-approved shows, and watch as the points and dollars add up!

The Performance Permit Color Incentive Fund is a direct benefit of the Performance Permit program, which allows Appaloosas without the breed’s characteristic coat pattern to compete in ApHC-approved and -sponsored events. The Permit remains effective for the life of the horse once issued, regardless of ownership changes.

Appaloosas must be parentage verified through DNA analysis by an ApHC-approved laboratory before a Performance Permit is issued. The original certificate of registration, current photographs of the horse and applicable fees must be submitted to the ApHC along with a Permit application, which is available through the ApHC and its official Web site http://www.appaloosa.com. An updated certificate of registration will be returned to the horse owner once the Permit is issued.

For complete details regarding the Color Incentive Fund and Performance Permits, visit http://www.appaloosa.com or call the ApHC Performance Department at 208-882-5578 ext. 400.

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.
