APHA is open for business in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards

The American Paint Horse Association’s international headquarters has opened in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards, and we’re ready to welcome our Paint Horse family along with throngs of Western-culture enthusiasts to our new home on Mule Alley.

The new APHA headquarters features a retail store full of Paint Horse merchandise; a grain-bin theater designed to immerse visitors in Paint Horse experiences; historical Paint Horse artifacts; The Rebecca Baker Legacy Loft, which honors APHA’s Hall of Fame and history; and a full office space for APHA staff to serve member needs.

“This marks the start of new opportunities for the American Paint Horse Association and the Paint Horse breed,” Executive Director Billy Smith said. “APHA is officially open for business in the Fort Worth Stockyards. All APHA members and friends are encouraged to come experience the new era of the American Paint Horse.”

The association’s new headquarters allows members to continue experiencing the exceptional service they’ve come to expect from APHA, and it will also display the beauty and versatility of the American Paint Horse to over 3 million Western lifestyle enthusiasts annually.

APHA’s iconic Legacy of Color Bronze will soon occupy prime real estate on Mule Alley, located less than 50 yards from APHA’s front door. Stockyards visitors from around the world will relish the opportunity to take selfies with this beautiful piece of artwork.

The association’s new address is 122 East Exchange Ave., Suite 420, in Fort Worth, Texas.

APHA invites everyone to visit and take a tour of this remarkable new headquarters. The official grand opening takes place February 28, 2020, as we kick off the 2020 APHA Convention.
