We know that your riding activities are as diverse as the color patterns on the horses we register. Through the Paint Alternative Competition Program, you can get recognition for accomplishments in the competitive events or just spending time in the saddle.

ocap_mainWhat is the Paint Alternative Competition (PAC) program?
Your community probably offers plenty of competitive events for horses and riders, such as 4-H shows, team pennings, ropings, horse trials, and other activities that fall outside the category of “APHA-approved classes.”

Even though APHA is not officially associated with these events, the association does want to recognize your efforts on your American Paint Horse. As a result, your accomplishments can be recorded on your registered horse’s official lifetime performance record through PAC.

Recreational Riding and Youth Recreational Riding
PAC credits will be awarded for all hours spent riding; however, the same hours cannot be accrued for recreational riding and any other PAC category at any one time.
Example: If credits are earned for competing and placing at a horse show in Trail, the same hours spent riding in that competition cannot be submitted for recreational riding credits.

For more information on PAC, email kutecht@apha.com, call (817) 222-6444 or FAX (817) 834-3152.
