APHA World Champion Roll Call: 2022 PAC World Championship E-Show announces winners

For the third year, exhibitors and Paints around the world took a shot at glory, competing in the 2022 APHA PAC World Championship E-Show September 1 – October 17. More than 150 entries from 61 exhibitors in 13 countries competed for world champion titles and prizes in 60 available classes.

Ellen Waidner & Expect It

High-Point Exhibitor honors went to Ellen Waidner of Huntington Station, New York, with Expect It, a 2010 sorrel overo mare owned by Margaret Nipper of Jacksonville, Florida. They were named PAC world champions in five events: Hunt-Seat Equitation Walk/Trot, Hunter Under Saddle Walk/Trot, Showmanship (Walk Only), Western Horsemanship Walk/Trot, and Western Pleasure Walk/Trot.

” ‘Piper’ and I have been a team since 2016. We have been fortunate enough to do a lot of showing together over the last six years. I recently moved to New York, which has limited my ability to participate in shows with her this fall,” Ellen said. “The PAC World Show gave me the opportunity to compete with her without worrying about the financials and logistics of getting to a show with us now living in two different places. I was able to record the videos with my best friend Maggie Nipper, who owns Piper, over a long weekend when I was home in Florida. I was grateful for a reason for us to get together and enjoy one of our favorite things, and the great result was just an added bonus.”

Class champions spanned Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Canada and the United States. Full results and exhibitor videos are available on the PAC World Championship E-Show page at apha.com/showing/e-shows/PAC-World-Championship-E-Show.

About PAC

The program was launched in 1990 to reward the diversity of the Paint Horse and give them the ability to put the success that they earn outside of APHA-approved classes on their lifetime performance records. Through this program, Paints can earn PAC “credits” in Western, English and ranch classes as well as events such as dressage, recreational or trail riding, roping and 4-H. These credits count for perpetual and year-end awards.

About E-Shows

APHA E-Shows started in Spring 2020 for exhibitors who do not have APHA shows nearby, want critiques from judges on their favorite events or classes they would like to try, or are just getting back into showing and want a low-stress environment to help them get back into the swing of things. Exhibitors have the choice of more than 30 classes to show in each month where they can compete against people from all over the world on any breed of horse and earn cash, PAC credits, critiques from an APHA certified judge and international bragging rights.
