United States Equestrian Federation


With varied coats of bold spotted patterns, the Appaloosa continues to chart a solid course as one of America’s favorite companion and competitive horses today, just as it did more than a hundred years ago. Thousands of these horses can be found in the United States and across the world, demonstrating their versatility as they compete in multiple disciplines and show classes.

As this breed continues to demonstrate notable growth in membership and horse recordings, the Appaloosa Horse Club has joined the National Federation’s equestrian family, as a 2006 United States Equestrian Federation Affiliated Association. With more than 28,000 members and hundreds of thousands of horses registered through the Appaloosa Horse Club’s International Breed Registry, it’s clear this breed will continue to command attention in the 21st century.

“We’re delighted to have the Appaloosas join the Federation as an Affiliated Association,” said John Long, USEF Chief Executive Officer. “The Appaloosas possess a rare beauty combined with athleticism that makes it a favorite companion of many equestrians and we gladly welcome the Appaloosa Horse Club to our equestrian family.”

"We too are excited about the opportunity to join forces with the USEF," said Frank Holmes, ApHC Director of Public Relations and Communication. "We look forward to forging a mutually-beneficial partnership that will add a new dimension to the efforts of both organizations."
