APHA and AQHA points


I'm just getting into the horse world. I've always loved horses, and I know enough to know what I need and such.

My mom was a trainer before I was born.

But now that I'm getting prepared for my first horse, and have decided to go either APHA or AQHA, actually, I'd like a double registered horse, I've come across an issue.
That issue is I totally do not understand how the points system works.

Can someone please help me?

2nd 1 piont
3rd 1/2 piont
15 horses
1st 2 pionts
2nd 1 1/2 points
3rd 1 point
4th 1/2 point

I think APHA is the same as AQHA but here's the point thing:
5 horses in the class: First place gets 1 point, second gets a half
10 horses: First gets 2 points, second gets a point, third gets a half
15: First gets 3, second gets 2, third gets 1, fourth gets a half
20: First gets 4, second gets 3, third gets 2, fourth gets 1, fifth gets a half

and so on
