APHA’s new Regional Club Sponsorship Program rewards club

efforts to increase participation with up to $30,000 annually

Association will award $1,000 to as many as 30 dedicated APHA Regional Clubs

Fort Worth , TX The American Paint Horse Association has created a new way to reward their network of Regional Clubs for their efforts to encourage participation, recruit new members, offer creative show formats and enhance the exhibitor’s experiences at their Regional Club-sponsored APHA shows. Regional Clubs are the backbone of the APHA experience; as such, the Regional Club Sponsorship Program supports those clubs that go the extra mile to make their APHA shows a great experience.


Regional Clubs provide the framework for attracting new members at the local or “grassroots” level and are just as their name suggests—a local group of Paint Horse enthusiasts that work together to hold events and gain support for Paints in their area. Since its inception in 1962, the Association has approved more than 115 Regional Clubs worldwide, which in turn are required to offer horse shows, trail rides and assorted community events within their respective areas in order to maintain their status.


The Regional Club Sponsorship Program will offer $1,000 cash awards to 30 clubs annually for use at a Regional Club-sponsored Paint-O-Rama show; or at a 1- or 2-judge show that the club is hosting in 2012. Clubs will be eligible for the sponsorship once during a two-year period and must be in good standing with APHA as outlined by Association rules. The club must fulfill all annual Regional Club requirements and the show must be approved with all show fees paid. The complete list of program rules and sponsorship application are available online at or by calling APHA.
