AQHA and APHA Match Stride in New Collaboration

The two largest equine breed registries in the world have come together in a unique partnership to bring more opportunities to horse enthusiasts worldwide.

For the first time in equine breed association history, the American Quarter Horse and American Paint Horse associations are partnering in a two-year strategic alliance. This collaboration of resources and expertise, which will touch animal welfare, youth development, data sharing, promotional activities and events, will help brighten the future of the equine community and heighten the value of riding and competing with AQHA- and APHA-registered horses.

With the help of visionary elected leadership from both associations, horse enthusiasts from around the globe will be the beneficiaries of this alliance for years to come.

“This agreement opens the doors for both associations to work together in areas of mutual benefit,” said Melanie Cox-Dayhuff, APHA president.

“It’s an exciting time when two, like-minded, strong equine associations can partner for the benefit of our industry, our members and our horses,” said Dr. Scott Myers, AQHA president.
