Inaugural South Central Paint Horse Championship makes a splash in Waco
APHA’s new Paint Horse championship show series made its way to Texas for the inaugural South Central Paint Horse Championship, which took place May 23-25 in Waco, Texas.
In conjunction with the Zone 4 Show, the South Central Paint Horse Championship named 15 new champions in classes ranging from showmanship to trail. The championships were hosted by the Zone 4 Coordinating Committee; though Zone classes are available for any APHA exhibitor, the Paint Horse Championship classes are restricted to those residing within Zone 4, which consists of New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. Additionally, horses and exhibitors could not have placed in the Top Five or Top 10 of the same discipline at the APHA or AjPHA World Championship Shows in the past three years.

With awards that included Gist Silversmith championship belt buckles and medallions for second- through tenth-place sponsored by APHA, the South Central Paint Horse Championship celebrated exhibitors in a variety of events.
