PAC Recreational Riding and PAC Youth Recreational Riding

Few things in life can rejuvenate the soul like a leisurely horseback ride on your American Paint Horse.
05fortrobRecreational riding and driving provide time to reflect on the day’s activities and plan for tomorrow. It allows you to relax your mind and body and escape from the hassles of day-to-day life.  Riding can provide quality time with family and friends, or private time for yourself. It helps develop personal character and promotes physical fitness.

Spending time in the saddle? Whatever the motivation, if you enjoy riding or driving your American Paint Horse for recreation, APHA PAC Recreational Riding  is for you.

By enrolling in PAC, you can strengthen your body and mind while exploring the great outdoors with your favorite Paint Horse—all while earning recognition for the time you spend riding and driving.

Ride for personal achievement. When you enroll in PAC, simply record each hour you spend riding or driving your Regular Registry or Solid Paint-Bred Horse (not including at APHA approved shows or competitions) and send your log to APHA. As you move up through the achievement levels, APHA records your accomplishments and each hour you and your Paint Horse achieve is permanently recorded on your horse’s official lifetime performance record.
