|The Iowa Paint Horse Club realizes
there are many American Paint Horse owners who do not choose
to exhibit their horse in the show-ring. But rather, they
enjoy their American Paint Horses out in the open spaces
either alone or with others. Whether we are competing in the
show-ring or riding out on the trails, we all have a common
bond … the love for the American Paint Horse.
The Iowa Paint Horse Club has put together a program to
recognize Paint Horse owners who enjoy the trails and open
spaces along with their showing counterparts. Our new
program is called “Ride Iowa.” It will work like the APHA
Ride America Program so that you may also be rewarded at the
State level for your logged hours. We are in hopes that by
offering this program we can bring together all Paint Horse
owners and show the true versatility of the breed.
The rules are much the same, with only a few extra
requirements, and are as follows:

type (regular or SPB Registry) is eligible to enroll.
