AQHA/APHA

I am seeing more and more APHA horses being advertised as AQHA. How is this? I emailed AQHA, and they responded that under no circumstances could paint horses be registered AQHA. So I don't get it...why am I seeing this all over lately?

Maybe an increased amount of dislexic :roll: (sp) sellers?

Funny :) But people have clearly added AQHA to their registries of their APHA horses. I have seen it a lot with APHA stallions on equine.com....

Are people just being dishonest?
Has the studbook opened up?
Is there some loophole in registry?
Is it some working trick?

I just don't get it. :) :)

I went to equine.com and looked at a few of these. I don't know why people list them APHA/AQHA, but for the ones that I looked at, in the 'Horse Details' section, all had either AQHA or APHA in the 'Registration', but none had both. Perhaps people are just trying to draw people to their ads.
I'm a member of the APHA and I know there have been no changes, and I'm sure the AQHA hasn't changed either. Both still have their parent breed + color requirements.

Funny people are doing that huh?

I find it rather dishonest, unless I am missing something in the registries. :)

I just saw a horse registered with both the aqha and the apha and the horse was a quarter horse.

Sounds like dishonesty. Maybe more letters = more money! I mean if someone doesn't know what they are looking at and never inted to use the papers...It may seem like a good thing. :roll:

Foal
There was a change in the rulebook for both registries... it was about a year ago or so?

The AQHA changed it's white rule (they actually got rid of it). Now any foal can be registered with them, no matter how much white comes out on it. If you can verify parentage... a lot of Paint owners are dual registering their crop out Paints with the AQHA.

Because of the AQHA rule... the APHA changed it's rules. Now a horse can only be registered as long as 1 parent is a Paint. So no more crop outs.

I think those changes may be more than a year old, but looking at the AQHA rulebook, yes, you can register a horse with white marking in the AQHA if you can DNA verify parentage (and the parents must still be in the acceptable registries), but the AQHA still considers it an 'undesireable trait' and is so noted on the certificate.
As for the APHA, I'm pretty sure the one Paint parent rule has been there at least 3 years...we bought our first Paint about 3 years ago and I remember actually reading the rulebook back then. I looked at the rulebook this morning and didn't see anything different.
The bottom line, though, is that you're right that there are a lot of dual registered Paint/QHs.

cool info! I still wonder why aqha e-mailed back sayin' "no paints" ???

That can be very confusing!
