• Horse must be enrolled in the PAC program.  Annual enrollment fee is $30 per horse or for two or more horses $27.50 per horse.
  • Participants must be a current APHA or AjPHA member.
  • Ride or drive an American Paint Horse—Regular or Breeding Stock Registry.
  • Participants do not have to own the horse, however, the rider must be a current member.
  • Time may be recorded for any activity in which you participate by riding or driving. You can also log time spent in the saddle or cart while riding in a group or parade. 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 also.
  • Participants must maintain a separate log on each registered American Paint Horse enrolled.
  • Keep track of time (one hour for each hour actually spent riding or driving) on the Official Ride America Time Log.
  • All time figured is on a one-horse/ one-rider basis and is on the honor system.
  • Participants are responsible for submitting PAC Recreational Riding hours to the association every 30 days.
