APHA has made finding Paint Horse professionals easier than ever with the debut of its new interactive online directory. Designed with the help of the National Reining Horse Association, professionals can now create their own individual profiles to advertise their services for free on apha.com. Search by name, discipline or location to find the perfect professional for your needs at apha.com/professional-finder/professional-search.
Markel APHA Professional Horsemen and APHA judges can now log in and manage their profiles, include pertinent information and keep the information up-to-date. Simply upload a profile picture and a description of your available skills to advertise your service to thousands of APHA members.
To become an APHA judge, applicants must go through a stringent application process, complete the applicant exam and attend the applicant school before being granted an APHA judges card. For more information about becoming an APHA judge, visit apha.com/association/judges.
