Amon G. Carter Foundation awards APHA $125,000

The Amon G. Carter Foundation, based in Fort Worth, has awarded the American Paint Horse Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Paint Horse Association, a $125,000 grant to support the restoration and relocation of the “Legacy of Color”—four large bronze statues depicting American Paint Horses from their location outside APHA’s current headquarters to their new home in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District in 2018. The APHA headquarters will be located on a beautified Stockyards’ Mule Alley in the Stockyards. The bronze sculptures will front a planned new boutique hotel at the end of the Alley.
The “Legacy of Color” relocation is one of three initiatives of the American Paint Horse Foundation’s Capital Campaign to support our move to the Stockyards. The other two initiatives. One supports the development of a Hall of Fame & Educational Outreach Center, which would enable our office to be a Paint Horse destination—a must-see attraction for visitors hungry to soak up the Western lifestyle and a home for APHA members across the globe. The other completed a Youth World Show endowment that will provide more than $100,000 in scholarship funds each year, allowing future Youth World Shows to continue to be all-scholarship shows. By adding a scholarship goal to our capital campaign, we’re harnessing the energy of our headquarters move to support our Youth. In the end, we’ll have a new venue to introduce young people to Paint Horses, and an attractive avenue with which to reward their equine endeavors as they grow.
