Horse color inspections offered at 2016 Youth World Show

Do you have a minimally marked Paint Horse that you think qualifies for APHA’s Regular Registry? Head on over to Fort Worth, Texas, with your horse in tow for a complimentary color inspection during the 2016 AjPHA Youth World Championship Show.

In an effort to assist APHA members in having their minimally marked Paint Horses reviewed for possible inclusion in the association’s Regular Registry, APHA MemberCare staff will offer inspections at the 2016 AjPHA Youth World Championship Show June 28–July 6. These complimentary inspections will take place at the Identification Station located on the northeast corner of the Richardson-Bass Building, near the John Justin Arena paddock, at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth.

“This is a simple way to expedite inspections for those who live nearby or for those bringing horses to the Youth World Show,” APHA Executive Director Billy Smith said.

To request an inspection, simply bring your Paint Horse to the show’s Identification Station. No inspection fee is required, but the horse must have a negative Coggin’s test and health certificate. If the horse is staying at the show, a stall fee is required; no stalls are required for haul-in inspections. The Identification Station is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 28, and 1 hour before classes begin daily until 5 p.m. thereafter.

If you can’t make it to Fort Worth for the Youth World Show, don’t worry—similar inspections will be conducted during the APHA World Championship Show in November.
