With the New Year came changes for the Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC). On Jan. 1, the ApHC began issuing Performance Permits to ApHC-registered, non-characteristic Appaloosas.
Appaloosas entered in the current CPO program will remain eligible to show in ApHC-approved or sponsored events and earn ApHC race awards over their lifetimes.
To receive a Performance Permit, Appaloosas must be parentage verified through DNA analysis by an ApHC-approved laboratory. The original certificate of registration, current photographs of the horse and applicable fees must be submitted to the ApHC along with the permit application, which is available through the ApHC. An updated certificate of registration will be returned to the horse owner once the permit is issued.
Appaloosas must also be ApHC-registered before applying for a Performance Permit.
