7 ways Paints help you connect with your passion

Horse lovers come in all ages, and the July 2015 Paint Horse Journal spotlights Amateurs who have joined the APHA family later in life. In “Along for the Ride,” several Amateurs share the stories behind their venture back into the APHA show pen and why showing is more than just the accolades.

“Along for the Ride” is our free PHJ online article in July—check out these Amateurs and their stories in the July 2015 issue or online. Other stories in the July Paint Horse Journal include:

  • University of Findlay’s equestrian studies students give you a glimpse behind this popular degree program in “If the Horse(shoe) Fits.”
