South Central Paint Horse Championship debuts in Texas
Gaining traction as an exciting new venue for regional Paint Horse riders, the Paint Horse Championships are making their debut in the heart of horse country—Texas—in 2015.
The first-ever South Central Paint Horse Championship takes place May 23–25 in conjunction with the Zone 4 Show in Waco, Texas. For more information about the Zone show, visit the Texas Paint Horse Club or contact the show manager.
The goal of these Paint Horse Championships is to increase show participation and provide recognition to another group of exhibitors beyond the current show format. This is an optional program, and show management determines the classes they wish to offer at their events, based on the interests of the area’s exhibitors.
APHA will sponsor awards for up to 15 classes per Paint Horse Championship, consisting of a championship buckle and second- through tenth-place medallions for each class. If a Zone chooses to offer additional championship classes, the Zone may purchase the additional awards for these classes. Moreover, shows participating in APHA’s Paint Horse Championship show format in 2015 are eligible to receive up to $3,500 in additional reimbursement for other awards distributed during the Zone show.
