The American Paint Horse Association’s newest cooperative venture creates an all ages horse show for colored horses in Fort Worth during the Youth World Show time frame.

The “NSBA Color of Money” show will be held June 24-26 at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, in conjunction with three of the year’s largest existing color breed events: the AjPHA Youth World Championship Show, the National Appaloosa Show and the World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show.

The Color of Money is an NSBA-approved show that is open to color breeds only. Entry fees will be jackpotted with a minimum 90% payback. Fifty-three classes will be offered for a wide range of divisions and disciplines—open, amateur and youth.

“We set out to create an event that would give our AjPHA Youth World Show more of a family atmosphere, where everyone can come and compete,” said APHA Senior Director of Shows Holly Slaughter. “With that in mind, we are offering classes for horses of all ages, and exhibitors of all ages and experience levels.”

Per NSBA rules, a color horse is one who is registered with APHA, ApHC, PtHA, PHBA, IBHA, ABRA or POA. If a horse is registered as PtHA solid registered, then it is not considered a color horse unless it is also registered with one or more of the following associations: APHA, ApHC, ABRA, IBRA, PHBA or POA.

The following classes will be offered at the NSBA Color of Money show:
