Take a look at the latest “Fresh Paint“.  The AjPHA Youth World Championship Show is right around the corner.

Marked for Greatness Leadership Exchange

Hopefully you didn’t miss the recent Leadership Exchange on the topic of Director Orientation.  For those of you who attended, thank you for broadening your knowledge of the duties of leadership for APHA.  The presentation has been posted on the apha.com website.  Check it out!

The General Store is growing, and with it, evolutionary, new and positive changes have arrived! We would like to invite you to “Experience Your Western Lifestyle” in our new online retail store, the PH Barn Door. Our promise to you is to be able to fulfill all your western needs – from fashion to home goods, to your Paint Horse. We also promise to provide you with unparalleled customer service and super speedy shipping! So, check out our new website at www.phbarndoor.com and enter code NEW20 when you’re ready to check out for a 20% discount off your entire purchase. We thank you for being loyal APHA Members and Customers.  Without you, we couldn’t do what we do best!
The Fort Worth Stockyards currently boats two stores with the name “General Store.” Upon APHA’s move to the stockyards, we would be the third store with such a name. The key element of branding is differentiation. Sharing the same store name with two other stores in the stockyards would not serve to differentiate our brand. Please welcome our new store brand, “The Barn Door.”

Making a gift to the APHF Capital Campaign is easy. You can send a check payable to “American Paint Horse Foundation” and in the memo line, put the initiative you are interested in, or if you just want to give to the Capital Campaign as a whole, simply put “Capital Campaign General Donation.” You can also use your credit card and give your gift online at http://apha.com/foundation/capital-campaign/donation-form/.
And did you know you can give a gift each month to the Capital Campaign and simply have it billed to your credit card? We’ll handle all the paperwork and send you a receipt when each gift is made or tally it for you at the end of the year. Just contact Billy Smith or send an email to foundation@apha.com and we’ll get it set up monthly, quarterly, or bi-annually.
