APHA is proud to welcome Erin Henderson of Albany, Oregon, as the newest member of the Paint Horse Journal Team for 2016.
Erin has always loved horses, but it wasn’t until she married Matt Henderson that she was able to realize her lifelong dream of showing halter horses. After falling in love with Obviously Custom Made, a 2006 chestnut overo gelding bred by her family, Erin quickly immersed herself in APHA showing.
As a member of the Turner-Henderson Show Horses team, Erin has earned numerous titles in halter competition. At the 2015 APHA World Championship Show, Erin showed My Dirty Intentions, a 2014 brown overo mare owned by Patricia Borland, to a world championship in Overo Color Class and Itsagoodnitetopartee, a 2015 bay solid gelding owned by Steven and Heather Youngberg, to a reserve world championship in Solid Paint-Bred Weanling Geldings.
