Competing on your Appaloosa

Appaloosas can do absolutely anything. Whether you're a competitive trail rider, show jumper, eventer, western rider or you do a bit of everything, the Appaloosa is your horse. It's not unusual to see an Appaloosa doing all of those things and more.

When you're a member of ApHANZ and you compete with a registered Appaloosa, you have the chance to vie for a variety of awards:

  • annual awards - using your points from August to July each year
  • national show awards - using points gained at the annual nationals
  • lifetime awards - using all points ever calculated
  • saddle log awards - based on your hours in the saddle

To qualify, each of the Registers of Merit must include wins over at least six horses competing in a class or a Supreme Champion over twenty or more Appaloosas at a show.

New Zealand Youth Champion
A lifetime award for versatile youth competitors achieved after a youth gains a Register of Merit in four different youth events plus a Register of Merit in Youth Showmanship.

Super Horse
The most prestigious annual award, celebrating the Appaloosa with the most points gained in a year (from National Show to National Show) with points gained in at least four of the following categories:

  • halter
  • western performance
  • english performance
