APHA are Quarter Horses with coloring.
APHA can be registered with AQHA (AQHA registered with APHA ONLY
If the foal has BOTH a Paint Parent and a Quarter Horse parent. The One Paint Parent rule.
APHA + AQHA= Double Registered APHA/AQHA
AQHA + AQHA= Only can be registered as AQHA
APHA + APHA= Only can be registered as APHA
At one point AQHA didn't accept horses that had too much white. So they were considered APHA and were only registered as APHA (not with AQHA).
NOW, AQHA does allow Quarter Horses with excessive white in their registry. However on the horse's papers it is stamped 'Undesirable White'. Which (from what I've been told) isn't going to help them in the show ring.
For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
