The Appaloosa Horse Club (ApHC) Board of Directors voted at their March 2007 meeting to approve an International Registration Incentive Program (IRIP) that will create an avenue for Appaloosa horses from select countries to be eligible for an international registration paper from the ApHC. These internationally papered Appaloosas would become an approved outcross breed, opening new markets for U.S. stallion owners.
All stallions participating in the program must have their DNA on file in the ApHC office and must have a one-time transported semen permit. Stallion owners are encouraged to contact the registration department at (208-882-5578 ext. 300) for information on the transported semen rules and for details on participating in the program. The Select Breeders Service network of affiliated laboratories will offer a 10 percent discount on freezing services for registered Appaloosa Horse Club stallions whose semen is intended to be exported. This offer is valid throughout calendar year 2007.
