Paint Horses Receive Top Honors at NCHA Futurity

FORT WORTH, TEXAS—The American Paint Horse Association (APHA)

recognized two talented horses with Gelding Plus incentive money for

their efforts at the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) World

Championship Futurity, held Nov. 26–Dec. 17, 2006 at the Will Rogers

Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas.

Part of APHA’s effort to reward Paint Horses for their success in competition, the Gelding Plus incentive program honors the owners of top Paint Horses with thousands in added cash. APHA awarded a total of $10,000 to the two top Paint geldings at this showcase event.

“APHA is excited about the success of these two Paint Horses at a prestigious event like the NCHA Futurity,” said APHA Paint Programs Coordinator Jessica McDaniel. “The sport of cutting, which requires an intelligent, athletic equine for success, is a natural fit for the Paint breed.”

This year, 2007, will mark a significant change in APHA’s incentive programs. While the Gelding Plus incentive’s added money will be distributed to top geldings at APHA Zone competition, NCHA competitors have will have the chance to win more than $75,000 at the 2007 NCHA Futurity through the Paint Preferred program.
