September 15. Please be on the alert for the e-mail containing
your National Director ballot.
The emailed ballot will be

Congratulations to IPHC Member Tiffany Payne on receiving the
$1,000 Farnam Breeders’ Trust Youth Scholarship! And thanks to

announcement that was sent out by APHA.

and novice youth exhibitors of APHA Breeders’ Trust horses
eligible for $1,000
WORTH—One important facet of the partnership between the
American Paint Horse Association (APHA) and corporate partner
Farnam Horse Products is the Breeders’ Trust Youth Scholarship.
Early on, Farnam set into motion the scholarship program to
support the youth of APHA, promote the Breeders’ Trust program,
and encourage APHA regional clubs to create outreach programs to
local equine youth groups by way of two $1,000 scholarships
Junior Paint Horse Association (AjPHA) members received an
“entry” into the Farnam Breeders’ Trust Youth Scholarship every
time they showed a Breeders’ Trust-nominated horse in APHA youth
or novice youth classes between April 1, 2012 and March 31,
2013. Entries accumulated per judge, per class.
first year, APHA tallied 61,941 total entries for the
scholarship. As per the program rules, entries were divided into
two groups: one for entries from youth classes, and the other
for entries from novice youth classes. One recipient was chosen
at random by computer from each group for a $1,000 Farnam
scholarship. Each winner then selects an APHA regional club of
their choice, which receives $500 from Farnam to fund an
outreach program to local youth equine programs.
Payne of Cedar Falls, Iowa, was the Novice Youth recipient.
Tiffany is a 20-year-old college sophomore. She has been
