FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — MAR. 28, 2013 — American Paint Horse Association registration fees for older horses are now more affordable, thanks to the registration special currently offered. Older horses with at least one Paint parent who are eligible for either Regular Registry or Solid Paint-Bred registration are impacted, and any APHA member may take advantage of this special pricing.
Horses eligible for Regular Registry ages 2 and older may be registered for just $100, while horses ages 3 and older who are eligible for Solid Paint-Bred registration may be registered for $50. Members who choose to complete the registration online can save up to $400 when registering Regular Registry horses ages 2 and older and $50 when registering Solid Paint-Breds ages 3 and older. Horses with two Quarter Horse or Thoroughbred parents, commonly called cropout horses, are not eligible for this registration incentive. For a complete registration fee schedule, see the 2013-2014 Official APHA Rule Book.
Registration applications can be downloaded at apha.com/forms/registration-forms, or the registration process can be completed through APHA Online.
