Not registered with APHA? It’s not too late! Check out these APHA Registration FAQs and contact us today to get the ball rolling:

  • My horse is already AQHA-registered. Can it also be APHA-registered?
    AQHA horses that meet APHA registration rules can be double-registered with APHA and AQHA. Being double-registered may increase your horse’s value while opening opportunities to compete at more events.
  • My horse’s sire and dam are Quarter Horses so how can my horse be a Paint?
    Even if both parents are AQHA-registered, if your horse meets requirements for white markings, he/she can be registered with APHA.
  • I have a broodmare/stallion that is registered with APHA based on white markings; what if the foals don’t have white markings?
    All foals by/out of APHA-registered stock (with the other parent being APHA, AQHA or Thoroughbred) can be registered with APHA regardless of white markings.
  • My horse is APHA-registered but not AQHA-registered. Does my horse have to be double-registered to earn Chrome Cash?
    No, your horse does not have to be double-registered; it just has to be APHA-registered.
