2016 End of the Year Points
Amy Schweiger:
Just going to brag a bit on one of the regional clubs I am proud to be a member of. This past weekend was the annual MApHA Classic show in East Lansing Michigan. Our club and its members have been working hard to get this show to be one of the top shows of the year. I think they are truly succeeding. We have 2 members that have gone above and beyond. One wanted to help promote the Jr games horses the other 3 year old pleasure horses. Neither had an entry in the class this yea...r. With their hard work we were able to payback over $3500 in our Jr stumps and Jr stakes. And over $3000 in checks with additional awards in our 3 year old Hunter under saddle and 3 year old Western Pleasure. The club awarded back over $1200 to various other classes and had $100 added money to our Yearling Longe Line Class. All together we paid out over $9000 in cash and awards. A huge Thank You to all of the sponsors for these classes! We had over 800 entries. The gamers came from all over the country this weekend and we ran 30 in the Open Keyhole, 28 in the Open Figure 8, 29 in the Open Stumps and 32 in the Open Stakes. We also had nice sized Non Pro classes with one of the stand outs being 19 in the Non Pro showmanship. We also had 10 in the Leadline class! And people these were all legit entries. Every gamer in that pen was in there because they were running a game horse. I have never seen a 6 point class at a regional show and we hit 4 of them! it was very cool! congratulations to all of my fellow MApHA members and to the BOD for doing such a great job at not only this show but all of our shows that are so well run and reasonably priced that Exhibitors want to return again and again. Be sure to mark your calendars for August 25-27 2017 for a trip to Michigan!

Added Money to the Three Yr. Old Hunter Under Saddle and the Three Yr. Old Western Pleasure Classes

The MApHA has initiating a new incentive program we thought you would be interested in taking a look at. The association has a history and reputation for having good sized, well-run and affordable shows. We are offering this program to make it even better in 2016.

The board believes this program will increase the size of the classes and benefit exhibitors who are interesting in earning national points. Plus, exhibitors can also win cash prizes and have their national point fees paid when the rules are followed for classes included in the incentive program.

Our shows currently feature $90 blanket fees on one horse or rider and reasonable stall fees. If you are interested in taking at closer look at what the association is offering in 2016, please look at the Michigan Appaloosa Horse Association Facebook page or the website at www.michappclub.com. All showbills and other information is posted and available on these sites.

Our members are excited about this incentive program and hope you are interested.


 Thank You to The Wire Horse who was a big part in our
   awards this year, and is always very supportive of this Club.
