APHA PAC program
For those who prefer to ride at their own pace, the association offers two recreational riding categories in the APHA PAC program – Recreational Riding and Youth Recreational Riding. Through this saddle-log program, members earn rewards and recognition for their achievements riding or driving an American Paint Horse.
When riders enroll in PAC, they record each hour spent riding or driving their American Paint Horse (not including APHA approved shows and competitions) and as they move through achievement levels—from 100 to 10,000 hours—APHA records their accomplishments
