EuroPaint tops APHA show list again for 2021

With more than 1,300 entries in 2021, the European Paint Horse Championships—fondly nicknamed “EuroPaint”—once again topped the list of APHA’s Top 20 Shows based on entries per judge.

EuroPaint took place August 22-29 in Kreuth, Germany. It’s previously ranked first four out of the last five years, including in 2019; COVID forced the show’s cancellation in 2020, but it returned strong in 2021 to resume the top spot on APHA’s annual list.
