Enjoy a host of benefits with your 2021 membership, now including the Paint Horse Journal

Starting January 1, 2021, the cost of an APHA adult membership will increase. In addition, all adult memberships will include the association’s flagship publication—the multiple award-winning Paint Horse Journal. This benefit is in addition to existing membership perks that include CHROME magazine, deals on valued products and services through the APHA Xtras member rewards program, discounts on a wide variety of APHA transactions, and more.
The Journal—combined with members’ existing CHROME benefit—means
APHA members can look forward to a steady stream of important APHA news
and interesting Paint Horse stories delivered right to them. International members and youth members will receive their Paint Horse Journal digitally via email. In addition, Paint Horse Journal advertisers will enjoy access to more than 40,000 APHA members worldwide.
Beginning January 1, 2021, 1-year memberships will be $65, 3-year memberships will be $150, 5-year memberships will be $250 and lifetime memberships will be $1,100. When current Journal subscribers renew their memberships in 2021, they’ll save $10 off what they would have paid for their combined membership and Paint Horse Journal subscription.
“APHA’s flagship publication is a valuable asset to keep our members abreast of news affecting the Paint community,” said APHA Executive Director Billy Smith. “Providing subscription access to our members keeps the award-winning Journal viable and creates a larger base to support it and our valued advertisers, including our breeders. This update allows for a much larger audience, attracting a larger advertising base, which benefits our entire association.”
Existing adult members can look forward to receiving the Journal with their membership upon their next renewal after January 1, 2021. Life memberships purchased after January 1, 2021, will receive the Journal complimentary for seven years, after which time they, along with existing
lifetime members, receive a discounted subscription rate of $20 per year for the Paint Horse Journal.
