Chrome Cash

Is my horse eligible?

  • If your horse has two inches of solid white hair above the center of the knee/hock or behind a line from the outside corner of the eye to the corner of the mouth, you possible have an APHA-eligible horse!

How it works…

  • Look for the “Chrome Cash” class at 2020 NCHA aged events and enter!
  • $2,000 added money to the Chrome Cash Paint Horse classes at select NCHA aged events in 2020. Not all shows with the Chrome Cash will have added money.
  • $14,000 added money at the APHA World Show Cutting Challenge in Fort Worth, July 2020.

How do I qualify?

  • Register your horse with APHA
  • Enter the “Chrome Cash” Paint class at designated shows


Q. My horse is already AQHA registered, can it also be APHA registered? 
A. AQHA horses that meet APHA registration rules can possibly be double registered with APHA & AQHA. Being double registered may increase your horses’  value while opening up opportunities to complete at more events.

Q. My horses’ sire and dam are Quarter Horses so how can my horse be a paint?
A. Even if your horse’s parents are AQHA, if your horse meets requirements for white markings, he/she can be registered APHA.

Q. I have a broodmare/stallion that is registered APHA based on white markings; what if the foals don’t have enough white markings for APHA Regular Registry? 
A. All foals by/out of APHA-registered stock (with the other parent being a Paint, Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred) can be registered with APHA regardless of color.
