In addition to your CHROME subscription and thank-you gifts, as an APHA member, you are also eligible for preferred rates on APHA transactions and a host of other special member benefits, such as access to our Xtras program, specials on Paint Horse Journal subscriptions and advertising, and HorseIQ discounts.

Savings through the Xtras program alone could return the cost of your membership in a flash! Through this rewarding program, members receive preferred pricing on RAM Trucks (which includes the Chrysler suite of RAM, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and Fiat vehicles), John Deere tractors and other equipment, roadside assistance through USRider, discounts on hotel and car rentals, insurance, Sherwin-Williams paint and more.

APHA members are also able to subscribe to the Paint Horse enthusiast’s “bible”, the award-winning, monthly Paint Horse Journal, at an exclusive member price and get special rates on advertising, as well.

Members also receive 30 percent off each month of HorseIQ—our innovative online exhibitor education platform that offers a leg up in the show pen with interactive lessons according to current rules and judging standards.

“Our members are what makes APHA so great,” Executive Director Billy Smith said. “What better way to celebrate this monumental milestone than by thanking them with some great gifts with their membership.”
